  • Great place for a family adventure! Lots of outdoor things to see and do!
  • A total gem. Great for kids and adults best museum shop on the planet
  • If you appreciate the at of metal work this is a must see destination! The quality of artistic talent that has passed through the gates and or resides on campus is in the upper 20 percent and they have all left their mark on the grounds. Bring a picnic lunch and visit the courtship for unique gifts that anyone will recognize as special! 4 troops for us so far!
  • My cousin had his wedding reception here in the summer. What a beautiful location for a gathering. The reception was outside and fortunately, the tent was not needed as it was a beautiful July evening. As day went to night, the sound of the Mississippi gurgled along. Didn't get a chance to see the inside of the museum, but I did enjoy the sculpture garden outside.
  • The works are amazing, as are the grounds. The museum also offers various events and shows so check them out online or via their Facebook page for more information.
