  • Highly recommend to tourists and locals alike. Rotating exhibits keep it fresh. General admission typically gets you access to everything besides one special ticketed exhibit which is constantly changing. Really appreciated the libraries and hands on activities throughout. Not a lot of art museums have stuff people can touch. Spent way more time here than I was planning on and ended up closing it down without planning on it. I'll definitely have to be back.
  • I love this museum and so does my 4-yr old. Not only is there a great collection of art here but there are also lots of activities for getting children and adults involved, which can honestly makes or break a family museum trip. The bonus is that children are completely free! The current open studio has a costume theme were you're able to select from tons of fabric to make your own fashion designs or sketch out the designs.
  • Great museum. Beautiful architecture. The museum itself was an amazing work of art. Great exhibits. Could spend days in here. Can't wait to come back again.
  • This is one of the most interesting museums that I've been to. They have curated some fascinating, unique exhibits. The buildings themselves are really cool too! Plus, they provide tours and discussions of selected artists/exhibits all day.
  • Outstanding, huge exhibition space. Everytime I have come here, I see something different. This is a must if you love artwork. They even have a section upstairs to step outside. After purchasing the access, it is a day long pass so you can leave and come back at your own leisure. Offer student discounts as well
