This seems like a small sized art museum that surprises when you begin to explore and find hall after hall of numerous styles of art. There is something for everyone here, from ancient art to modern art. We enjoyed viewing it all!

There is so much to see here! We saw the Ansel Addams exhibit—impressive—he was so concerned about the environment and rightly so. The glass exhibit is extremely informative and interesting. With free parking, and free entrance this is a must visit!

This is the best value for an art museum we've found on the east coast. Free or make a donation and spend hours enjoying the collections. Don't forget the glass house and Waterside is nearby.

Special exhibits are a treat, glass collection off the charts, kid-friendly with special notes by paintings for kids, and a delicious cafe. Just a great museum for locals and visitors.

Of course. This is the most amazing Museum, and I'm sure the docents will accommodate any tour you would like.
