  • Almost every Saturday Morning, small Farmers Market is held there. The hours are 8:00AM to 2:00PM. There are some farmers selling. fresh produce, others sell food items, and sundries. The food sold is vegetarian based. The issue with the location is the heat since most vendors are located in a hallways which does not get much breeze at all.
  • Great museum! A lot of information throughout the tour. There's a lot of people and you'll prefer to grab a map and organize yourself, in that way you can enjoy a lot more of it.
  • There was only a small portion of museum open for public viewing. At the time it was a collection of photographs and short film on central America and the islands of the Caribbean, along with a few art pieces. Admission was free, so no complaints there; nonetheless I would not make it a specific destination. I would suggest going only if one happens to be in the area.
  • Really great collection, small but free. Some spectacular pieces
  • Must visit... great information thru beautiful art
