  • Had some interesting sections. In full disclosure I'm not a huge art fan. I'm sure those who are more artistically inclined would enjoy more. That said is a fairly small time Museum
  • 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.
  • A m a z i n g. Great place to get lost and just enjoy art. Very Clean with helpful and polite staff. Family friendly all the way.
  • 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.
