  • The staff are great! The museum doesn’t really offer much. And half the art is pictures taken and printed out of the art. Still a nice little walk through.
  • Some very interesting art work... especially if you like mechanized art.
  • The triplets had great fun at family day today. The volunteers were super friendly and patient. The family art room is a creative hands-on space for kids to create art in the styles of featured art in the third floor collection. My only suggestion is not to charge for service workers who accompany kids with special needs. My trio can't go out with out their one-on-one aides and it is an extra expense for families of children with special needs.
  • Smaller than it looks from the outside. A few interesting kinetic pieces but they don't run. Without the movement they lose the impact.
  • Okay, the museum is very small, it is. It's set up like that for a reason because Andreas Bechtler and his family have collected many great pieces, the most important and influential artists of the mid 20th century including Miró, Giacometti, Picasso, Calder, Hepworth, Nicholson, Warhol, Tinguely, Ernst, Le Corbusier, Chillida and many others. They have a large collection and have decided that it's best to present a small amount of it in this small wonderful art museum. The top floor is pretty large, at least to me and I think that it's very amazing to just walk around from one art piece to another, imagining what the artist was thinking when he/she made it. I truly recommend anyone to go there and take time to look at each piece. It's only $8 so if you like art, go and have fun!
