Wonderful exhibition of artifacts from around the world. It takes a few hours to do the visit well. Also the Hispanic section (Peru) was well documented. Delightful visit.

With many folk art pieces in the permanent collections, the Museum does a wonderful job of presenting new exhibits of many and various kinds. I enjoyed the beadwork exhibit during my last visit.
