Cedar Rapids Museum of Art, Cedar Rapids

The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art houses more than 7,700 works of art spanning many eras—from Roman antiquity to the present. The collection is particularly strong in American art, especially from the first half of the 20th century. There are a number of artists the Museum holds in great depth—including the world's largest collection of works of art by Grant Wood. The Museum also possesses a strong collection of Roman portrait busts donated by Tom and Nan Riley, and an extensive print collection from the 15th century forward primarily donated by Peter O. Stamats.

The collection is too comprehensive to be displayed all at once. That means chances are good that you'll see different, breathtaking pieces each time you visit!

  • Small museum with some great exhibits. Ticket prices are very reasonable. They also have a nice little library area near the store and a coat room so you don't have to lug it around.
  • Small but very lovely museum that has a nice set of rotating exhibits. An excellent place if you like Grant Wood, naturally! They also have a nice number of presentations and talks, which make for good repeat visits. Discounts for students are good.
