“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

Some of the art is "Freestyle" art that seems a bit of a push, but a lot of it is interesting. So if you feel like looking at some beautiful art, depressing art, and having a laugh a good place to go.

“Packed with surprising famous artists, well displayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

I kept being surprised that this beautiful small museum had such famous artists. It is a great place to see all different genre of art without the exhaust size of other museums. See a Monet, a Warhol,a Rodin up close. Lots of Moms were showing their preschoolers art this day. What a fresh way to enjoy art, well displayed.

“Fun & Interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2012

They always have new exhibits and if you are an art lover, like myself, I highly recommend going by. There is no cover charge. And even better, I hear they are opening a new wing with simply Asian art.
