This is a really terrific art museum with a price that can't be beat. The European and American collections are excellent, but there are fine pieces from all genres and periods. The galleries are laid out very well, and although you could easily spend half...More

Except for special exhibits, this museum is free admission. Even those special exhibits are free on Friday afternoons. Parking can be problematic, so go early or plan to pay for garage parking.

This is one of my favorite art museums and well worth a destination trip. It was crowded today as the museum was hosting “Art in Bloom,” a competition to create flower arrangements inspired by specific art works - an interesting concept.

We have the best art museum in the country and that's before you find out it's free! You could spend all day there and still not see everything. I never tire of going. A must-see when you're here.

Friendliest during special events, such as Art in Bloom, when they have targeted activities for children. The rest of the time I would say not so much, like any adult art museum.
