So nice museum. Small, thought would be bigger, incredibly not much to see. Also one of the floors are being updated. Restaurant closed on wknds which makes visit even more boring.

Visited one afternoon while on a work trip, and was quite impressed with much of the artwork they had displayed. The collection was varied, the staff was kind, and we enjoyed touring the place for about an hour.

I had a wonderful evening here when Burnt Glassworks had an event. I learned glass etching. The teachers were so patient and I'm actually considering attending a glass-blowing event.

I had the opportunity to see a lovely concert on Mother's Day of this year and the exhibitions were great. The acoustics for the concert was wonderful and I rather enjoyed the more intimate auditorium setting.
