excellent lay out and interesting exhibits to ponder over. The grounds leading up to the Museum would be a whole other review that I would put on your list to visit and explore as well.

Wonderful exhibits in the museum and then there there is the entire grounds around the museum, Sculptures, fountains, and the garden. Such a gem! It's a regular stop for us whether is it the museum itself or the grounds.
