Grand Rapids Art Museum

The sleek design of the modernist building reflects the gorgeous contemporary artworks within. Learn how to make art fun in the workshops and camps.

European and American works dating from the Renaissance period to the modern art era make up the collection in the Grand Rapids Art Museum. Explore the exhibits with a staff member on a guided tour for a comprehensive understanding of the context and meaning of key pieces. 

Admire the immense portico of the museum, with its narrow slabs holding a minimalist roof. The museum was first established in 1910, although this modern building opened in the 2000s. At night, dots of light generate a sophisticated glow around the modernist structure. 

Inside, visit the Welcome Center. Here, you can pick up a brochure and play with interactive machines.

Examine the impressive works held in the permanent collection by such artists as Richard Diebenkorn, Joan Snyder and Jennifer Bartlett. Wander through the temporary exhibits for the artistic treat of the day. Past displays have had such titles as Tony Mendoza: Cats and Dogs, and Alexis Rockman: The Great Lakes Cycle.

Bring your family to the GRAM Studio for a drop-in program or workshop. These allow visitors to get involved and make their own works of art, from paintings to sculptures. School programs and art camps are often available in the museum.

Peruse the selection of toys, accessories and art books in the Museum Store. Bring your own snacks and meals for a picnic on the outdoor dining terrace. 

Expect the museum to be open Tuesday through Sunday from late morning to late afternoon. Members and young kids enter for free, while adults, youth and seniors have differing fees.  

Grand Rapids Art Museum is on the eastern side of the Grand River in the downtown district of the town. It is sandwiched between Rosa Parks Circle and the Grand Rapids African American Museum & Archives. Arrive at one of the nearby bus stops or get around the area on foot.
