  • Great art in an intimate and private setting
  • Great museum. However, exhibits change frequently
  • The beautifully designed and managed grounds with spectacular sculptures was well worth the trip from Baltimore. The current indoor exhibit was very unusual and the docents were very professional and helped you explore the exhibit without having too much history and and more about the feeling of the exhibit which relates to a sense of architecture and visual perceptions. Lots of places for outdoor photography throughout the grounds but no photography permitted indoors.
  • What a lovely, serene place, so conducive to acquiring an appreciation of thoughtful post-modern art driven by mathematics and philosophy. Interesting, accessible docents. Beautiful landscape and architecture.
  • I liked the Andy Goldsworthy "permanent" piece at Glenstone contemporary Museum. It's made of earth & clay, with fibers of hair in between. This ball has it's own house.
