This would get five stars if the museum didn’t shut down for so long and the security wasn’t breathing down your neck. I’m not going to touch the art like a child, so relax.

This place is going to be awesome after it is finished from the rebuild.

Truly a fantastic display of various cultures right here in Bloomington. Take the time to come in and see how privileged we are to have such a collection that would be the envy of any major metropolitan area, let alone college campus. This is a wonderful place to just come, unwind, and relax while looking at some breathtaking exhibits.

For a rather small city such as Bloomington, this museum is excellent. The art inside is as impressive as the I.M. Pei designed architecture of the building. I've been a handful of times and every time I return there's always something new and fascinating I didn't see the previous time, the last time being Vik Muniz's exhibit. They know how to bring the right artists through there.

A great collection of art in an amazing facility. I really enjoyed the recent Vik Muniz exhibition here.
