Though a small museum, there are some pleasant surprises found in the Albrecht-Kemper's collection including a Cassatt, Glackens, Chase and a cool speak easy and library. This is an American Art collection museum and one worth a visit if you are in the area.

This is not a large museum, but they do have a good collection of American paintings and sculpture. The museum is arranged in chronological order, which makes it a fascinating place to spend an afternoon.

We missed the brunch and wish we would have made reservations. The original house wood work is incredible. The art is separated into the permanent collection and changing collection. The library in the basement is lovely. The kids artwork was a joy to view during...More

BUT, let start out by saying that I actually enjoyed visiting this museum. The Kempers and their foundation have done a terrific job of gathering collections to exhibit. The artwork runs the gamut from traditional oil on canvas to some of the newest techniques. Don't...More
