Fodor's Review

This museum has a celebrated collection of 19th-century American painting, in addition to fine pre-Columbian and German expressionist works (including many paintings and drawings by Max Beckmann). Over the years, the museum has acquired important works of early modernism by Matisse, Monet, Picasso, van Gogh, Degas, and other early 20th-century artists. Works by Anselm Kiefer, Franz Kline, Gerhard Richter, and Jenny Holzer are among the more recent acquisitions.

Good museum

For its size, a very good museum. Has a solid core collection with worthwhile pieces by famous masters and non-European items -- has especially fine turn-of-the-20th-century German canvases. Housed in the old Palace of Fine Arts from the 1904 World's Fair, in an attractive park setting. Not easy to reach via public transportation, but well worth seeking out.
