  • Very beautiful place to visit the kids really enjoyed seeing other kids artwork. Also outside is a nice place to have church picnics family picnics and a great place for fishing.
  • Free art museum that has two large traveling front galleries along with smaller classical and modern art collections. This center is large, quite, and the artwork and associated movements are well documented. There is a gift ship and restaurant named Canvas with indoor / outdoor seating onsite as well.
  • So many exhibits at no cost (but please make a donation). Very comfortable atmosphere with great works from artists throughout history from past to present. Incredible men's room.
  • Great place to visit and have a bite. Also check out EL DUBYA Pottery in the gift shop.
  • I enjoyed this place a lot! Great pieces to enjoy throughout the museum. Best part? It was free!
