  • Small museum mainly dealing with contemporary art. The exterior of the building is very inviting but the collection inside is very limited unless there are special exhibits going on. Worth a visit if ...  more »
  • Some amazing exhibits. Saw a photography exhibit that was surprisingly creative and breathtaking. Don't miss this place if you are staying in downtown area.  more »

  • I loved it. I really enjoyed my resent visit to the art museum. Don't know when was my last visit to any museum. The tour guide was awesome. It was all free. She was informative and interactive. Stuff available there is also amazing. Good for kids n adults to get inspired. My son (7) was super happy there.
  • Recently visited this museum downtown. Fees are $10 for adults, with discounts for students, kids, and seniors. I wouldn't make a special trip here unless I wanted to see a particular exhibit. The Crossroads Exhibit was the most interesting. It has a nice collection of etchings, wood engravings, and lithographs of early twentieth-century American culture. I found the Propeller Group exhibit uninteresting.
  • Not large, but the curators are sharp and thoughtful. Always worth a visit! Support your local art orgs...
  • I came here several times before and it is a calm and quiet place to watch the artworks. The Museum is next to the Cultural Centre and you can come here by bus or shuttle bus of a nearby hotel. Why not spend an hour or two here to relax and cherish your mind.
  • This is the first time I've been disappointed with a museum in the bay area. I came in with high hopes and was faced with a waste of time and money. Barely any exhibitions, none of which was particularly interesting. And some genius decided to place a gallery next to the restrooms. Talk about disrespect. Would not recommend.
