  • A fun space, with changing exhibits. It's small, but worth dipping into when you're downtown walking around. Would be a great space for a modern party, a book launch, etc.  more »

  • It's a nice building inside, but after donating $5 to the museum, we were a little upset at the lack of art. There's a ton of white walls with no art. Maybe the joke was on us and the museum represented a minimalistic expressionism piece. 😁
  • Not my type of art. It took ten minutes to walk through and we lingered as much as we could. It's a dollar to get in so it's not a waste of money.
  • Maybe I'm just not that into Contemporary art, but their exhibits are a bit contrived. I think they could do more to help budding art appreciators interpret their experience.
  • Fun place. Old depot turned museum. They also host events and have parties occasionally. We went their new year's one which was a blast. Keep an eye out for what they have next!
  • Fantastic museum to spend some time in. It's small, so it's easy to see everything in under an hour, and they feature interesting exhibits. Best of all, it's dirt cheap normally and free at certain times as well!
