  • BEWARE SCULPTURE GARDEN ATTENDANTS!! We drove here from Temecula with our two grandchildren to see the Andy Warhol exhibit currently on display. We started at the "sculpture garden" and a large group passed us, causing my husband to step to the side to make room. Within seconds an attendant appears and shouts at him to step back on the trail. We all flinched but brushed it off as we didn't want to ruin our trip. A few minutes later my six-year-old granddaughter (who is on the autism spectrum) touched one of the concrete installations. The same male attendant came running up SHRIEKING at my granddaughter to stop touching the "art". She burst into tears and we promptly left. To make it clear, these are cement "modern art" blocks in a dirt path surrounded by a parking lot. Management needs to have a serious talking to with these attendants who seem to make every effort to scare people away.
  • Great small museum. Currently special exhibits on native American baskets and women in glassmaking. Their regular exhibits are great as well.
  • It's a nice smaller museum that exhibits local artists with different mediums of artwork that rotate periodically. They also have a beautiful Sculpture Garden with a rock waterfall which is really a must see.
  • Always interesting and exciting to see what’s new and trending. Garden is a real treasure.
  • We had a great docent led tour of the exhibits and really loved the sculpture garden outside.
