  • 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 mak...  more »

  • To be honest, the vast majority of the pieces were quite odd. It wasn't until we found the random corner of the museum that we discovered some more "normal" but still thought-provoking pieces. Worth a quick tour, but no more.
  • Interesting gallery, quite quiet when I went which was nice to have the place to myself but I also finished it quickly so I wouldn't make a day trip of it. I believe it was entrance by donation only so that was nice, but I wish I had inquired about where the donations went, it would be nice to see them going back into the art community or to assist art students with grants and such.
  • A small place, but used very efficiently. What they show first looks odd, but it makes you think about it. The place was mostly quite.
  • A few pieces were really exceptional but otherwise I was not too impressed. The donation based entrance is voluntary so it's not bad given that.
  • It's a decent / ok museum. There was 1 exhibit worth viewing (exhibits will change) of the 4 there. All the exhibits are inside small spaces. If you don't expect too much, then you might find a few things you will enjoy. Their recommended donation is $5 per person.
