  • Oh I can't say enough about this museum!!!! If you like art and if your kids enjoy creating things then this is a place for you! There's a section in the basement purely for kids with little tables for them to create things pertaining to the exhibit they are showing. Or they can go over and play and enjoy stuff that is also pertaining to the exhibit upstairs. They have an outside area that you can walk through with sculptures. The exhibits change over a course of time and they display something new. If you plan ahead of time they will prepare a tour for you with a Docent and have a craft at the end. Or you can wander through it @ your leisure. And the best part is it's all FREE!
  • Very nicely laid out. It was easy to walk about and view the paintings and drawings. I was there in the last week of the Escher exhibit and it was a bit fill, however it was easy to go on to another picture and come back. I also enjoyed the smaller exhibit of a regional artist that showed similarities to Escher. Will come back when it is not raining to see the outdoor bird sculptures.
  • Great place if you're in love with all things art! New exhibits come in all the time, so there's always something now. A very quiet place too.
  • We went for the Escher exhibit, first time there. A spectacular collection, a great companion app for phone or check out a tablet to get commentary on the exhibits. One of the nicest art museums I've been to. We plan on going back for the next exhibit. The permanent exhibit is birds, the art strongly reminded me of the Rollo Beck bird collection I knew at San Jose State University in California in the '60s.
  • It's very nice and has that small town yet upscale feel to it. Went there for the MC Escher exhibit. The staff were helpful yet not bothersome. Spent about an hour and a half there. Outside has a small park like area with metal sculptures. All in all it was better than I thought it was going to be
