  • It certainly a nice visit. The staff were nice, I was being stared at by one employee but they were just doing their job that everything runs smoothly. I do wish that there were more to explore, it seemed like a place to spend one to two hours on. Perhaps having a more detailed description of the art or the artist would also be nice.
  • Went there for formal dinner party. The art clearly speaks for itself. And the interior allows for awesome pics.
  • Excellent place to bring students to get lessons in fine art. Classes are not long and the tours are great for intermediate grade students.
  • Great place. The museum are separated into two building, so make sure you check both out😂😂
  • This is an art treasure,that has supported and proudly displayed controversial of Artists of the times. For example,Thomas Eaken's,circa 1900. To this very day,they display,controversial artists. Many of them,are non-white. Theiir school,even now, is at least;as important-as their museums. Don't miss the annual displays,of the current PFA student.
