The Taubman has a surprisingly deep permanent collection with an emphasis on American 19th and 20th Century Art. There are frequent special exhibits on such diverse subjects as Faberge, Norman Rockwell, and the American Impressionists to name a few. Admission to the museum is always...More

It is a small museum downtown, but well maintained, and free. I'm not sure what they had on the first floor, but the second had about 6 exhibits. It was a variety of things to see but my favorites was a Lieber purses. That was...More

I came here for a work function and I felt the overall atmosphere was very dry. The displays were okay but overall I wish the City of Roanoke would have used this space for something more locally original.

Unexpectedly good art museum for a relatively small town. The building itself is a work of art. And its free!

A unique building housing a varied collection of art. The standard collection is very interesting with a variety of art. The rotating collections can be hit or miss so need to do research. The best thing though is walking through and around the building.

The museum is housed in a striking building, reminding one of Gehry's architecture (but not by him). Inside are very good museum spaces filled wth modern/contemporary art, mostly in special temporary exhibits. The museum has free admission, only charges for one special exhibition. We saw...More
