We went because it was BoA's free museum weekend and WOW what a treat. We are so glad that Bank of America offers this perk to their customers allowing folks to experience museums that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to visit.

Unique displays & easy access were appreciated. I loved the glass art featured during this visit. The outdoor big displays were worth the detours. The city block sandbox with babies impressed.

We had initially wanted to find some native American art but their museum was closed. So we were pleasantly surprised by the extensive display at this museum - which did include a mezzanine of Latin American art and crafts, some of it centuries old. The...More
