  • A great small museum with a focus on classical artworks. My child loves that she can sit and do sketch of the paintings. A good, quiet place to spend a lazy afternoon.
  • My family and I were visiting not long ago, what we experienced was utter shame on the museum's security. I didn't know that when you enter the building that we would have a security officer be at our side the whole time telling us what to do and how to look at the art. I'm a very detailed person when I look at art and or photographs. As I got closer to look at the work, the woman security officer yelled at me that if I got any closer that two feet of the piece that she would have me thrown out or arrested. I didn't know that couldn't enjoy our visit but to be spoken to like child or criminal, that drew the line. I told the "Rent-A-Cop" that if she didn't step back from my personal space, that she would need to have her supervisor handle the matter. When I asked her who her supervisor is, she told us that "she is" the supervisor and her rules apply. We will never return to this half-wit museum. What a shame as well, it has some potential of being better than it is now.
  • Friendly people ready to help if you have questions about rules or galleries. I loved the variety of art and levels in building .
  • Nicely air conditioned, clean, and quiet. Free admission and friendly staff. Obviously cannot bring food, drink, or take any photos in the building. We brought strollers and they allowed closed water bottles for kids!
  • its free and very clean with changing art that is fresh and cared for with lots of different styles and time periods. Great museum.
