    This is right across the street from the Mercer Museum and worth adding to historic tour. The artwork was great and the room dedicated to James A. Michener was the best.  more »

    My husband's group, the Back Bench Boys, sang here yesterday, along with the Tiller sisters. They have sung here 3 or 4 times, and I always enjoy it. The art and other items on display are awesome!

    A beautiful County art museum that changes the exhibits routinely. Features a lot of local historical artist, and there were many famous ones, that keeps the exhibits fresh. They offer children and adult art classes which to me seem a little pricey compared to offerings from other organizations in the area. My wife and I make 2-3 trips a year to see the exhibits or lectures from visiting artists. Best to get on the event mailing list as that is the easy way to keep abreast of current events.

    Remarkable permanent collection. Also enjoyed the Sam Maitin prints exhibition.

    Come here after you've visited the Mercer museum. It's a bit small, but quite interesting.
