  • Nice art pieces, you can even enjoy sculptures outdoors, one of my favorite places
  • Great collection with an awesome garden. Go check it out.
  • Fabulous, intimate, museum space and outdoor sculpture garden. Current exhibit is the Helene Galen collection and it is one of a kind and fabulous! It exhibits the spirit and attitude of the donor with a focus on modern and contemporary art, including light and space artists. Interesting and provocative. It includes a piece on Marilyn Monroe with 6000 gel capsules by the artist whose name is Desire, Obtain, Cheirsh! There is a Twiggy photograph by Richard Avedon. Sallee, Cleaver, Avery, Matisse, Joan Brown, John Buck, Al Held, Scavullo. Pop artists galore!
  • Tiny but beautiful gardens
  • Our experience was very unpleasant. After spending $5 to be able to go in and see the "art", we quickly realized that all the art was in one room. $5 to look at 25 pieces of "art" was a bit much. Save your money and walk through the sculpture garden instead.
