They seem to have a knack of having the most interesting exhibits on display. The Egyptian rooms are fascinating but the rest of the Museum is a do not miss attraction in Palm Beach County.

The permanent collection is thanks to donors from the Palm Beaches spectacular for such a small local art museum. The shows are well curated and alwys of good taste and quality.

Although this museum has a decent sized permanent collection, only part of it is on display at any one time. Frequent rotations and specialty exhibits keep things fresh for frequent visitors.
