Fodor's Review

Opened in the fall of 2008, this Randall Stout–designed faceted-glass structure soars amid the surrounding mountains, the contemporary architecture striking a balance with its natural location. Formerly known as the Art Museum of Western Virginia, the Taubman, with its new 81,000-square-foot home, quadruples its previous exhibit space, housing 19th- and 20th-century American art, modern art, and small special collections of European and ancient Mediterranean art. Norah's

Café serves light fare throughout the day. Take advantage of free admission Thursday 5–8 pm.

Taubman Museum of Art Review

An overnight visit to English style Tudor Hotel Roanoke, adjacent to Market Square & Taubman. The art museum is quite unusual in its design with Gehry style design with sweeping vistas of surrounding mountains. Washington DC doesn't have anything as nice as the Taubman! Don't miss railroad photos from O Winston Link at nearby museum, next to the visitors center. Try the cobb salad at Norahs Cafe inside the museum. A real treat to visit Roanoke!
