  • Very modern building with intimate art collections ranging from ancient pottery to local photography. There is a large space for guest exhibits and an outdoor area that gives a lovely view of the river as well as the Henry B. Plant museum across the river. Nearby is the Curtis Jaxon Waterfront Park which features modern landscapes and a children's park. Overall, a very lovely place to spend an afternoon or early evening.
  • I have to say the ticket prices are a bit high but worth it. As for most museums are expensive anyway. Its very modern and has very simple yet mind blowing things inside. Worth it!!
  • For such a big city this is not worth calling an art history museum. Lithography prints and photos adorned a space more akin to a warehouse, then a museum. We were taken aback that there were only 1-2 paintings in this museum. Alot of what we saw today, we could've seen for cheap or free at our local art museum instead of paying 10-15$ a person. While true they did have other exhibits, this museum left much to be desired.
  • the building it's in is incredibly nice. the overall design, inside and out, is minimal. though, I wish it had a bigger selection of art pieces.
  • Nice building with small handful collections. Staff are very friendly. The ticket price is a bit high for the number of collections they had.
