Picasso, Van Gogh and many other famous artists fill the walls. Don't miss the downstairs exhibits. There was a rap/hip-hop photography exhibit...More

A great art gallery. I highly recommend taking a free tour when you get there to get a good overview then explore on your own. There is an area where you can try to sketch one of the pieces.
