  • This museum is an incredible find for such a "small" package. It has an impressive variety of work on display and is constantly bringing in special exhibits. Several masters (e.g. van Gogh, Vermeer) were on display at last visit. The Chrysler center is heavily involved in the community and thoroughly engaging. The associated glass studio is also incredible, with glass working classes open to the public at very reasonable prices.
  • I was here for a quick visit. They have some great artwork. Next time I want to visit the glass blowing event.
  • GREAT MUSEUM! WONDEFUL ART COLLECTION! AND FOR FREE!!! One of the best parts of this Museum was that it all was for FREE (no admission or parking fee)! I was very surprised since the museum is very big and they have a huge collection. I especially was in AWE of the paintings and sculptures upstairs. They were fascinating and beautiful and very old. A piece of history! They had some relics of Egypt like a sarcophagus and things of the Roman empire as well! Just awesome! If you enjoy and appreciate Art this Museum is a must see. Great place! Highly recommended!!
  • It's FREE It's a beautiful Free art museum! With a rotating exhibit! I've been 4 times in the past 6 months! Every other time I go, one of the staff members, a young man, who is very knowledgeable about the museum, stops me and my guest and shares interesting information about various pieces in various exhibits! Wonderful!
  • Great museum with plenty of exhibits to fill up your afternoon. As a local, I waited way too long to visit this place. I highly recommend coming by early so you don't run out of time to see everything.
