  • I went to this museum for it's Andy Warhol exhibit and was very pleased with it. There was a great balance between art and educational writing to go with it. I was pleasantly surprised that there was a Chuck Close piece on the third floor. Also, there was a collection if commissioned pieces about the Great Lakes that were very educational. Overall, a very wonderful art museum.
  • Loved the exhibitions here. The facilities are beautiful and peaceful. I highly recommend not just going, but going back whenever they have new exhibitions. Friendly and knowledgeable staff as well.
  • I love coming here on free nights (Thursdays after 5) it’s pretty small so you can get through it pretty quickly! I wish they had a bit more turnover of exhibits.
  • I love it! We went during the Andy Warhol exhibit and though it was not a very large exhibit it was still beautiful and.informative. I'd have to say my favorite part was sitting and listening/watching the Christian Marclay video quartet. They also have concerts but unfortunately we misses it during our visit.
  • Nice art display... I love the design work studio at the basement. Wonderful staff
