  • This museum is immediately adjacent to the Salt Palace and has a medium-sized amphitheater with nice seating and good AV capabilities. It's great for a presentation to an audience drawn from a convent...  more »

  • Terrible experience. I took my two young children and was treated like we were not welcome. I was teaching my children to not touch the exhibits and helping them keep their hands away. They were being very well behaved and quiet and I was watching them closely. We were yelled at by one of the workers, followed closely around the room and were told we needed to leave because my daughter put one of her fingers on one of the stands. The worker girl basically just did not want us there because she thought my well behaved children were going to ruin all the art exhibits just because they were looking at them closely. We will not be back again. Children and families are definitely not welcome. So if you're looking for a cool learning experience for your children, go anywhere but this museum because you will probably be told to leave if your child breathes within a foot of an exhibit.
  • Art is in the eye of the beholder. It was interesting. Worst part is that it was really warm. Best part was the staff was friendly and informative. $5 minimum donation suggested.
  • Very few exhibits to see. Not well thought out, most artwork was lesser quality than that of my nine-year-old. Very amateurish. I can see more artful videos on YouTube by much more talented individuals. I paid the $5 per person donation, but it wasn't worth 5 cents.
  • Amazing building, thoughtful exhibitions, friendly people. Should be bigger. What's cool is that it's free (if you are in a pinch, but they ask for donations).
  • The museum is large, but the exhibits are small and reminiscent of freshman art class. Two of the twenty exhibits made me pause in satisfaction, but most were too focused on trying to be "edgy" or make a political statement than capture any appreciation of life, art, or society.
