  • Pretty expansive art collection, including a few modern exhibits and pieces as well. Aesthetically pleasing and very beneficial to the pieces and works being featured. Very quiet environment, not as fun as the history museum but that is another completely different setting.
  • Great exhibits but hard to find your way back and forth. The staff apologize for the map provided as that is"less than helpful". Indeed.
  • I have feared going back since the last time I was there one of the museum guards ( worker or associate ) literally harassed my family throughout our entire visit. This individual would be far better off working at the cafe or the boo store. He ruined my visit to the museum and I have been horrified to go back. First he does not allow my wife to carry our infant in a baby sling on her back ( while never mentioning it was ok to carry our child on my wife's stomach..which someone else that worked there later told us). Then, he starts following us...and then he actually stops my mother from putting a breath mint in her mouth. If that isn't enough my older daughter was moving and backing slowly towards a painting at one point while I was talking with her and before I could react he comes rushing towards my family like its a 4 alarm fire to stop her ( at least 4 feet away from a painting ). My father is a curator at another museum and he was flabbergasted at the behavior of the individual. I could not enjoy anything else with my visit for fear he would pounce on us again. Horrible experience.
  • Collection of 18th-19th century European art is small but a good representation.
  • The cafe has the best coffee near Craig St. Also serves beer and decent food. Hours aren't great though.
