If you're interested in design, you'll find plenty to engage you here. It's like the Victoria and Albert Museum. An eclectic collection of "stuff." Musical instruments. Deco and Nouveau posters. Period rooms. Chairs. Some rooms you'll whiz through. Others will make you pause and study....More

I expected a first class art museum, but was terribly disappointed. No classics or old masters. Just since sculpture, pottery etc. Modern art was disappointing as well.

Visited "The Polaroid Project' and the "DELETE" exhibitions, both very powerful and recommended if you visit during the time they are available.

This is a great museum to visit as they have many different exhibits so everyone should find something they find interesting. Very cool building with beautiful spaces and nice staff. My highlight was the bookstore with many special and interesting books I'd never seen before.
