  • Great gallery with nice pieces. I went for high tea with my grandmother and had a great time. 6 different kinds of tea and a delicious spread of food. I just wish there was some background music playing because it is held in a fairly trafficked hallway.
  • Really love this museum, it offers so much culture and history. The pricing is somewhat high but for good reason, which you will find out shortly after entering the facility. They have great programs for adults and children, including a child part of the museum. I suggest a membership if you plan to go more than a few times in the year as it may be more affordable.
  • Beautiful gallery. Very well laid out, the staff is also wonderful and very helpful. With March break they had fun programs for the kids going on today which was nice to see. The gift shop is extremely cute and their area for lunch is perfect, the woman who runs it is so kind and sweet and makes the best sandwiches. Very clean and has a fun vibe, I loved how they were showing a film today, very informative.
  • Beautiful space. Went through with my daughter sleeping and it was so lovely. The historic collection is free to view and they are happy to let you take photos ( I believe without flash.) They have this amazing setup where the gallery walls have little booklets that identify the painting and give you all the info without you having to bend hanging over the wall.
  • It was so Fun to have a school field trip their. Everyone was nice and fun. I also learned a lot of cool facts
