This is a place for detail-oriented people. If you like to just be wowed by every piece at first sight, moving quickly through collections, you're not going to like it. There is a right way to experience this museum, and that is to take the...More

wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now
the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend
a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for

bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander
around admiring the charming gardens and the
sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may
