  • Wonderful museum!! Great array of artwork, mosaics - the display of armor is very cool. Impressive collection and was able to see most of it in a couple of hours. The docents were very knowledgeable. Will definitely go again!
  • Currently hosting an exhibit about cats (MEOW). Wonderful exhibits from all parts of the globe. Handicapped accessible. Wonderful cafe inside.
  • I went during star wars days and it was great. Activities for the kids to do, star wars people walking around in full costume. It was a lot of fun. The selection of art was also really nice and interesting. The gift shop is a little drab though, just a bunch of cheap stuff.
  • Very friendly staff and free parking! Lots to see! The live cats in residence was awesome! Come see Finn the blue cat!
