  • It would have been a Great Museum but there was absolutely no one working in the foundry and metal works shops. For me that was unexcptable for this type of educational institution and the fact that they advertise it. The exhibits were okay, but not worth the price of entry of very small galleries. The 10 Year anniversary gates where worth seeing, but there is no need to pay for admission to see them on the street.
  • Very interesting . Beautiful creations by talented artists. Quiet place to stroll near the water.
  • Great place to go for a quick stroll. The museum costs but the sculpture garden is free.
  • Awesome place to spend the afternoon, the exhibits, the sculptures and cool people make this a must see.
  • It was affordable and a different experience!
