Have visited twice. Wonderful collection of colonial era arts and crafts. Inner courtyard is lovely and sandwiches and drinks are available, thought not the first choice food-wise.

We went there for Tim Burton exhibition. Of course the exhibition was nice. But the building and also the patio are very pretty. Worth the visit.

The Tim Burton exhibit is fantastic for fans. Lots of drawing and sketches.. a bit pricey (330 per person) for one hour to walk through. No photos allowed inside. Great courtyard with an ice cream stand.. plenty of photo ops outdoors.
