Fantastic museum. This is beautiful space that is very well laid out. There is an excellent permanent collection, and creative temporary exhibits. The glass collection is amazing. Entrance is free (I think they should have at least suggested donation on entry). Parking is easy and $8 just behind the museum.
An absolutely wonderful experience. The museum has a wonderful selection of art from across the centuries. No matter your taste, you will find something you'll like. The staff is polite and knowledgeable. When you are planning your visit, you definitely want to block out at least two hours to get the most of your time.
This is a surprisingly nice museum. The layout is easy to follow and the lighting is good. They have many pieces from recognizable artists and their ancient artifacts are amazing. Their air conditioning is top notch. Great way to spend a hot summer day! Parking is $7 around the back of the museum. Free parking for veterans. Parking is paid inside the museum. Admission is free which makes it even better. If you like glass art, make sure you check out the glass house across the street, its also part of the museum. The front steps are an amazing spot for a photo shoot.
One of best art museums in the United States and not to be missed! We all enjoyed our full day there starting with watching a glass blowing demonstration when the museum opened, and then viewing paintings until closing time. It’s easy to spend a whole day at this fine museum.
I went for the Art & American Car Culture exhibit. Very well done. Nice pieces, well placed. It’s a very nice museum. I also checked out the other galleries. Everything was very good. You should go.
