We loved visiting the Art museum for free with the military summer program! While it is small, the kids loved the statue garden and kids at play room. I wouldve loved to see more of a mix of art but grateful the AC was cool and the children were amazed by the galaxy photograph exhibit.

As a visitor to Vero Beach This was a lovely stop. The museum and its works of art are definitely worth seeing. The building itself is interesting and the artwork unique and beautifully displayed. The extra special treat at this Museum Is the Garden in the back. It is a place to spend quiet time to enjoy the beauty of the garden in the sculptures that are there. And I would say dont skip the Museum Store. There are also some unique and beautiful items there at affordable prices

We went here on free day at the Museum. I had never been here before and will return. Loved the inside and outside art of their permanent collection. Loved the museum store and certainly made it up to museum for the free admission with many gift purchases. Only issues were that they didn’t have any type of map outlining what was in the museum and that the museum was in between exhibits so normally there would be a lot more to see. Docents were all over and were great at adding little bits of extra information about pieces which was nice. I will go back when there is an exhibition.

I take my aunt to this museum once a month. Shes 86 years old. We walk around and look at all the exhibits and we always have a good time. When the concession stand is open we grab a bite to eat before leaving . We always enjoy seeing what they have.

Architecturally interesting, in a secluded location. The guitar exhibit was amazingly well done. Learned so much in a short amount of time. Even had an air guitar which of course does not exist. A few quality Ashcan school artists. The standout picture in original period 19th century frame was a large haystacks painting by #MartinJohnsonHeade It is luminous as it gets. In great condition, it seems it has always been in a cared for position. Loved the sculptures garden and art classes. The docent was charming and well spoken. Very nice experience. Will go back if in the area.

Such a wonderful little treasure of a museum! Even the café now has delicious sandwiches and snacks made on site. All the visiting exhibitions I’ve been to have been highly memorable. I also love that they offer classes—such an asset to the community.

The art was amazing. Very happy to see the Phillips collection. I was a bit disappointed they closed early the day we went and we drove over an hour to get there so was not able to explore as much as I would have liked.

The current exhibition of Phillips collection is thorough and tells a story thats worth viewing. Really liked the museum. Recommend

Review №18

Not as big of a place as most museums. The cost of admission is comparable to museums such as Bostons Museum of Fine Arts yet not even close to being as interesting. I suppose that explains the lack of patrons the Saturday morning we stopped by. Sad since the facility is quite nice.Exhibit currently on display seems to be more about photography than actual paintings and classic art.The sculptures in the garden were more interesting and seemed to be the highlight of this visit for me.

This morning Kathy and I went to the museum and saw the exhibition of the French Posters. It was fantastic Well worth the hours drive to get there. And of course we had to go through the rest of the museum. What a lovely surprise to see what theyve got.

I brought my children here for a free event and it was amazing! There was so much to do and see with lots of variety. The museum was clean and well laid out. The staff was very interactive with my 10 year old and taught her so much. I purchased a membership and cant wait to come back.

Really amazing place. They have admission discounts for students, elderly, and military active or retired. They also have rotating exhibits. Ive gone and seen nearly every one for 3 years. The docent tours are at 1 and should definitely be done to get the most out of the exhibit but not necessary.

The Museum is located in a park with a beautiful design and several sculptures are displayed as a part of it. The building is brand new, spacious and has interesting pieces exposed. Its worth visiting.

Occasionally has good exhibits. They lack in public outreach, example, museum needs more free days to allow art to reach other sectors of the local population.

Review №36

Pretty museum with more than i expected. Unfortunately they were changing exhibits so some of the works i wanted tio see werent open forviewing.Cons: Female employees talk to each other non stop on the floor which is so annoying. Patrons also act like theyve never been to a museum and act like theyre at the mall talking on their phones or loudly to each other. Someone should shut them down for that behavior. The lighting in some cases was harsh and couldnt see works for the glare.Pros: Beautiful building and a great selection of art. Nice sculpture garden outside. Totally worth a visit...

Always a great visit and great docents, makes it a memorable visit. They have a great astro photography exhibit. Oh and the wax guard is still sitting in the corner of the permanent exhibit. Great Chinese zodiac year gold carvings.

Kid admission is free and it was a really nice beautiful place to visit during our vacation to florida. Sadly the outside exhibit was closed due to weather.

The museum has an open, flowing gallery with a focus on sculpture throughout the grounds. The wonderful thing about this museum aside from the exhibits/galleries are the community events. For example, there is story time for toddlers every Wednesday. The kids love it, and they get to draw and glue a craft or piece of art with their friends after! Check it out.

A great town like Vero Beach deserves a great museum, and Vero Beach museum is really fantastic. Besides displaying great art, there is always something extra happening such as Christmas activities or classes designed to engage special needs children with art. The people who work and volunteer at the museum and all very friendly. Great place for families, couples, or individuals with an eye for art!

Few would expect that small, quiet Vero Beach would also be home to a world class museum. An impressive permanent collection which is rotated in galleries, rotundas and hallways is bolstered by a variety of visiting exhibitions. Truly family centered with activity offerings foe all ages and interests. Not to be missed.

Review №65

On both google & the internet, it said the museum was open on Monday and as it was a rainy day, we decided to check it out. Upon entering, we approached the desk. A rude woman sitting there said with a grimace, as most museums are, we are closed on Monday. Well, we exited without comment as I couldnt think of anything pleasant as a response. I have lived overseas and traveled extensively, I am not trailer trash & do not appreciate our treatment.

To be honest I dont like this museum it was boring and didnt have many attractions. The kid section is extremely boring it just has the same things and in understand this is for the young ones but even older ones should have a fun experience too.But the one thing I do enjoy was when you draw a fish and it will be projected on the screen and that is very unique.

Wonderful museum to spend some time to walk around and enjoy the ART. Too bad the small restaurant has very short opening times and is always closed when we come. The changing exhibitions makes a visit interesting. Some old stuff shut go! Unfortunately it is not free anymore and all have to pay for a ticket.

Very entertaining to go to and see all the art and sometimes there are events like shows on the cafeteria. There is free admission on Saturdays so even if you dont have money you can enter. There is even a kids area with tablets to play with. There are even volunteer opportunities every now and then.

The new kids zone is a fantastic resource for kids of all ages. Its inside the museum, so the weather is never an issue. The 4th Saturday of each month is Free Admission Day, a great time to see the latest installation. There is a kids playground not far from the museum, a boat launch, tennis courts and a walking trail. Really great family place.
