The Joslyn Art Museum contains mostly 19th and 20th-century European and American art, featuring artists like Winslow Homer, Mary Cassatt, Claude Monet and Edgar Degas, among others. But it also contains a pretty sizeable American Indian collection. The Chihuly glass chandelier also impressed recent travelers, as did the building's art deco architecture, with one reviewer saying the museum (and what it contains) looks like it belongs in Florence, Italy.

Located in Old Market on Dodge Street, the Joslyn Art Museum is usually open Tuesday through Sunday with extended hours on Thursday. General admission is free daily, though there may be a charge for special exhibitions and events. For more information, visit the museum's website.
