  • One of the perks of being a #collegestudent..."museum-ing" while on #campus. #CulturalCompetency is not only learned in the classroom.
  • Really nice small museum. The people are really kind and nice - they encourage to make a visit to museum again. They had Tseng Kwong Chi exhibition going on and an Iranian film festival inside the building.
  • The Phantom Limb exhibit going on right now is INSANELY cool. Make sure to watch the documentary in the back room all the way through!
  • Neat little museums with several small galleries. Eclectic collections are shown.
