    I love this Museum of Art. As soon as you walk up the steps, you know it is going tho be beautiful inside. I recommend every one to go visit if you have the chance. The artwork is amazing. It is clean and well taken care of. There are elevators if needed.

    Beautiful always changing way to spend an afternoon with the family. I do not recommend the cafe inside however, the museum itself is absolutely amazing. It certainly doesn't hurt that entry is free.

    Absolutely wonderful facility. I've taken several classes at the glass studio and they are always a blast. The staff is super friendly and helpful.
