On the 3rd Thursday of every month a docent led walk will educate you to the lesser known details of the art you are witnessing. The traveling shows are always intriguing, and the ceramics collection is world class.

Whenever we travel we always stop by a local museum, and my kids have been many places. We were very interested in this museum because it was designed by I.M. Pei. The building itself and courtyard are beautiful, and my kids enjoyed the sculpture gardens...More

If you like art museums this is a nice excursion for a half day. See a variety of art mediums in an ever-changing display. Classy with a little bit for everyone.
