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

I went here with family members recently. I had no idea what kind of art would be featured. It was mostly modern art and ceramics. The ceramics were cool. I'm not a fan of modern art so many of the paintings weren't my thing. The...More
