This was the perfect place during a rainy day. The collection is quite nice. Not a lot of famous pieces, but many pieces by well-known artists that you likely have never seen in books. The cafe is very pleasant, if over burdened on a rainy...More

This museum houses a small collection, but has names you will recognize: Picasso, Warhol, Calder. There is a nice collection of Renaissance art and the special exhibit on Archetypes of women was exceptional.

The city garden was a nice place to take a walk. It has many interesting sculptures to peak your interest.

It's a standard museum. Nothing bad just nothing that set it apart from others I've been to. It does seem to be undertaking an expansion of some sort so I'm sure it will continue to improve.

The Art Museum is good for 4 stars but the sculpture a definite 5. Excellent modern sculpture from a variety of artists as well as disciplines. Paintings are a mix of traditional through to contemporary. The impressionists and surrealists were particularly inspiring.

Unfortunately, we didn't have enough time to do this museum justice so instead went for a wander through the Sculpture Gardens....fantastic, reminded us of the Vigeland Gardens in Oslo. Definitely worth a visit and very handy access via the Streetcars.

In the beautiful setting of the city park and lake. Collections of European, American, and Asian art including a good collection of Impressionist paintings. Free guided tour at 1pm is very informative
