  • An amazing gem we didn't even know about! Stopped in after driving past the sign. There's a sculpture trail outside, although some of it is hard to get to in winter, so we mostly observed from the lot. Excellent exhibits, both modern and ancient. A cute educational area for kids and a spotting scope to observe the elk refuge across the street. Definitely worth a stop in!
  • Such a beautiful place.. &- It's truly reverential towards the Wildlife that it displays...everywherešŸ˜ in the museum
  • If you love wildlife, or if you love art, you should go. If you love both, like me, you'll absolutely love it. The collection is beautiful and well presented. There's a stunning Rungius gallery, some Warhol pieces, and more. I love that one of the gallery is dedicated to raise awareness about the animal trade. The building and its location are well worth a stop even if you don't go in. Just go!
  • So cool. Lot of beautiful art. Great section for kids too
  • Absolutely outstanding! I could spend three days here. Painting, drawing, sculpture from abstract to realism. The Andy Warhol exhibit had more depth than I expected. Lovely lunch at the restaurant, Palate.
