There was a special exhibit when we toured and it was fascinating. The permanent exhibits also are fine and well worth your time.

This is a lovely little museum which is a delight to walk through. If you are looking for old world masters be warned that this is not the National Gallery in Washington DC... the do have a small gallery of masters but no extensive display of impressionists, or renaissance masters. Rather this is a well presented collection of different art which becomes a satisfying journey away from the current "Trumpian" disgust. There is something for everyone. Even though my wife and I have visited many European national galleries we still find this museum to be very satisfying, and visit two or three times a year. Well worth the visit. Watch for special exhibits to tailor your trip to your own tastes.

I had the good fortune to find another reason to make another trip to the museum has 2 floors and has an elevator if the stairs won't do. As always we were warmly created and I brought a first timer. She had never been. She is a bit of an artist herself. The slot machine art of the first floor made me laugh. Since art should make you feel something a laugh was great. They art is changed from time to time so I like to go 4 or 5 times a year. The native center seems unchanged but I also seem to see new things each time a go. I love the place. If you like ever changing art this place is for you, your friends and family.

As an art gallery owner, I try to visit as many places as possible. This museum was so worthwhile! Queit, reflective, and multiple collections to browse. The woman working the counter was incredibly helpful. Can't wait to go back!

Visited the Hallie Ford with some art friends recently. We spilt into small groups for a docent tour. I have visited many museums in the past few years, and the Hallie Ford is a little gem. The docents are knowledgable but don't lecture you. My favorite gallery was the Native American exhibit. Fish traps, closely woven baskets, carvings, and masks were placed near more modern works by Northwest Native artists. And the small gift shop was terrific, carrying both inexpensive fun jewelry and more spendy work by local artists. All in all, a great experience for the museum lover.
