    Very nice small museum. Beautiful grounds to walk around. !ots of cafes nearby. Cool exhibits. A land mark for Delray Beach.

    Often overlooked but easily seen. It was a while before I ventured in to the old school now museum. The display changes a few times a year so fun to go back over and over again once you have explored it. Really cool date idea.

    I have been to the museum several times to just walk through and see the latest exhibit or take in some of the presentations that they periodically have by artists that are showcasing their works. It is well staffed with knowledgeable volunteers and full time staff.

    We saw the amazing Joan Quinn exhibit and had a lovely chat with the director of the Museum, who was generous with her time. I would definitely go back to see the next show! Photo of Frank Gehry scuplture, "Pisces," attached.
