Forget the Louvre, forget the Met—the Albright-Knox Gallery is what a world-class museum should look like. Built in 1905 by local Buffalo architect Edward B. Green (there have been a few additions since then), the Albright has a knockout collection of 20th-century European and American masters. Its permanent exhibit is big enough to please everyone—works from Picasso to Pollock to Rodchenko—but not so huge that it overwhelms. If you've always wanted to see a Van Gogh without crowds jostling you (or a Renoir, or a Matisse), here's where you come. On weekends in summer there's jazz on the wide front steps.
