Nonetheless, you can still see some fine pieces, including a number of significant impressionist and...More

The accoustaguide availability makes a big difference. Really nice job with that. Now a relatively small local museum being re-built to be large local museum. I can't wait. But free until re-built.

If you enjoy viewing or owning good art, this is a great Museum to review some rare art pieces. I have visited the Norton in Pasadena, CA as well and they both have much to offer to lovers of the ARTS!

It is a freebee and will soon have expanded space (much needed). It is a short time stopover between other attraction...like the antique district.
