“Wonderful learning place”
Reviewed 5 March 2012

We always have agood time going there, with so many exhibitions going. Lines are too long, sometimes, so be patient. It is a great place when it's rainy, of course.

“This museum has a welcoming, comfortable atmosphere.”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

Not the stuffy forbidding feeling one often thinks of when you think of "museum". The employees were friendly, smiling and helpful. There were cushioned benches throughout,so you can just "drink in" the inspiring art. Each of us was given a small electronic "guide" for use if we wanted, a great idea, enabling all us to go through at our own pace.

“Great permanent collection of an excellent impressionist artist upstairs”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

William Glackens' impressionist paintings enjoy a delightful permanent presence in the Museum upstairs, and present a wonderful counterpoint to the often modern collections that come and go. There is also a lovely reproduction of a room in his home with some of his paintings exhibited there. If you like impressionism, you may not be familiar with this artist. The exhibit of his works makes it worth the trip, regardless of what else may be the star attraction of the day.

“It's What You Would Expect of an Art Museum”
Reviewed 21 February 2012

Nice smaller museum. The current traveling exhibit is a collection of old master's paintings and tapestries from the Renaissance and Baroque period from the Uffizi Gallery, very interesting. I takes a morning or short afternoon to see the whole museum.
