It may not be a grand museum, or a metropolitan-like gallery, but the Albright-Knox Art Gallery is definitely worth visiting. It is intimate, a treasure grove of today's artworks. Many contemporary and modern artists have a place in the gallery and if you're even slightly interested in art or paintings, you should not miss this gallery.

If you can, try to go on the first Friday of the month; it is open longer and the admission if free.
