All reviews seem positive

rather small 8/6/2005

This museum is about 3 or 4 floors but they are rather small. I went recently and did the whole museum in about 30 mins. The folk artwork is interesting but it would be nice if there was more. The museum is pricy if you take it to consideration the size but Friday after 5 you can get in for free.. more

Not sure here 8/5/2005

A little expensive for what's offered, about 2-3 levels of exhibits. If you are particularly interested in the particular exhibits or are a researcher of American history or folk art, then you should go here. Otherwise, it's not much for the casual art goer. It reminds me lot of small museums along stretches of interstate in the middle of nowhere, like east Texas or the Midwest, except it's a multi million dollar building in the middle of Manhattan. more

Small museum with interesting exhibits & excellent gift shop 8/3/2005

Small quiet museum on the west side that specializes in American folk art of the 18th and 19th century. They had a very neat and interesting exhibition of Jacob Kass' work. In his seventies, he painted farm and city scenes of American life from the 1920s on to various hand tools and saws as a hobby after working many years as a painter doing signs on the sides of trucks. They recently had an exhibition of quilts. The gift shop has delightful handmade crafts that make unique presents or bring back memories of childhood. Admission is about $9. more
