  • This is a very nice museum with a nice variety of art. Easy access and plenty of parking nearby. There are two historical houses that are part of the museum as well as a nice restaurant in the back.  more »

  • 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!
  • Lovely museum with a great kids area.
  • Wonderful collection of Western art and rotating exhibits.
  • Great place to see art from all era, native American to latin to Picasso and warhol
