  • This gallery is first class all the way. Very wealthy patrons means excellent exhibits. Easy parking and a very pleasant place to spend a rainy (in Florida?) day. 
  • i love this museum, when it goes free it's even better. i like to go every other month or so to see what piece catches my eye, it always seems to be a different piece. schedule a visit when a public tour is going down, they are usually fun if you get into the spirit
  • Admission is free until construction ends in 2018. Very limited viewing area but artwork is heavily rotated in the meantime. Largest museum in south Florida.
  • This is a small museum in West Palm. We went up for the Chinese New Year celebration but took the time to look around all of the exhibits. The exhibits are arranged in different categories, from Chinese antiquities to current photography. I'm not very well educated in art, so I just go with what I like. I think my favorite item was the photograph of the Beatles having a pillow fight. That's something I can understand. I also enjoyed the Chinese porcelains, delicate and beautiful. I was really looking forward to seeing the Van Gogh exhibit, as he is one of my favorites. The entire exhibit is one small painting of poplars. It was beautiful, but almost lost in the huge, ornate frame. Oddly, this is the one thing in the museum that you are not allowed to photograph. They also have a gift shop with some truly beautiful pieces for the home as well as some educational items, clothing accessories and some jewelry that I'd love to have.
  • Even under construction it has great works of art....and Thursday nights are fun a
  • Really nice museum. Very nice vibe to it.
