  • Small but great pieces and well designed spaces for viewing. I would have loved to have seen more protest/political art since there is so much that is told mostly in art due to problems in journalism. Mostly either abstract or early modern.

  • Excellent museum with 4 exhibition centers and a statue garden. The museum is lovely and great to visit. Remember to keep your backpack in front of you.
