  • My wife and I made it out one afternoon when the babysitter was cheap. So, admittedly I was already having a good day. But still, we had a great time. The exhibit at the time was a rug collection, and I never knew I could be interested in rugs! The facilities were immaculate, and even though it looks small from the outside of feels very open from within. Outside of the traveling rugs (flying carpets?) there were several southwestern exhibits and even a classical section which were rather impressive. All in all an enjoyable trip for sure. We might go back when a new exhibit comes into town.
  • An impressive collection, with new exhibits frequently. The members-only events are always enjoyable! We miss John from the gift shop, though!
  • Great place to see art from all era, native American to latin to Picasso and warhol
  • Art museum in the heart of downtown. Parking can be difficult to find your first time. Suggest parking at library and walking for first time
  • Has never disappoint me. Either special exhibits or hosting locale events, they have always been great.
