Great place to spend an afternoon. It's so much more than a contemporary art museum- there is a great variety of art. Gorgeous building/landscaping that is thoughtfully laid out. A must do when in the area.

Have heard about this museum for years, but finally arranged a visit. Was fascinated by the quality of artwork on view. Also appreciated the café next door. Makes a nice place to take a break and rest your feet. Don't miss this jewel!

We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the museum. The architecture is wonderful, clean lines and a perfect canvas for contemporary art. Usually I'm a staunch critic of modern art but even I found several pieces I fell in love with.
