This was our second visit--which is actually two separate museums. The layout, exhibitions and explanations rival the Herd Museum in Phoenix. A must-visit.

Extraordinary, sprawling collection, brilliantly curated. Save time to go through the rooms at leisure. Occasional kid-friendly crafts activities available. I didn't know so many cultures dove into beading with such energy and imagination!
