Welcome to the Joslyn. Would you like to see our Jackson Pollock?

Despite being in the midwest, Omaha refuses to be a cultural black hole. One example of this is the Joslyn Art Museum. The building itself is magnificent, a stunning example of art deco. The permanent collection is worth a visit in itself, and the temporary collections only add to the experience. Definitely worth a stop if you are in Omaha. The Joslyn has free admission on Saturdays before noon, as well as discounts for students and seniors. Additionally, the EdTech portion of the museum provides kids with backpacks to help them explore the museum. The following pictures were taken in the museum (no flash photography please). 


  1. Is that glass art at the top Chihuly? I JUST saw an exhibit of his here in Boston and have become obsessed with pretty colored glass.

  2. It is! The Joslyn actually has two Chihuly sculptures and they are both beautiful.
