  • This is mixed bag in my book. There are some great exhibits. Then there are the exhibits that look like a homeless person was rooting through the garbage. But I guess that is modern art for you. Does not make the best use the scale space. Lots of empty rooms. You can move through the museum pretty quickly.

  • Plenty to see, odd hours.
  • Museum worth to be visited
