  • Amaziing gem of an art museum. Although it has a fine maritime collection there's so much more. Hudson Valley School/American Sublime landscapes and an amazing impressionism collection.
  • The selection keeps growing every time I go their. They rotate exibits and is just fun and interesting to visit. Not to mention they have many classical paintings from well known artists.
  • Beautiful collection and location—this is truly a gem along the Mississippi! Jon and staff go out of their way to welcome guests and showcase their world class collection. The gardens and building are well kept and my overall experience was delightful! I will definitely be back!
  • Surprising selection of famous artists, beautiful location
  • Worth the time to visit.
