  • I enjoyed my trip to the museum. The museum was extremely educational and had diverse content. It’s worth going to being that it is a donation only museum. I wouldn’t recommend bringing small children being that I don’t feel like it is a suitable museum for children.
  • From sarcophagus to Andy Warhol! I loved that school students were there on the floors doing activities of hundreds of years ago. So much to see. It is chilling and educational. I want to go back and spend more time there. The employees are excellent!
  • Great place to learn about art - ancient, recent, classical, modern, Asian, Aztec, Mayan, Native American, Greek, Roman, Egyptian. Good information and pieces. I’ve gone three times and would go again.
  • Great museum and it’s free!! On Sunday there is some free street parking. Nearby parking garages have weekend rate of $4 a day.
  • Great museum. Many interesting things to see. And it's free.
