“Magnificent permanent collection, great exhibit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Just visited for the first time to catch the excellent Maharaja exhibit and wish I'd had more time for the extensive permanent collection. Beautifully layed out and everything well documented. Impressive. I'll be back.

“The Maharaja Exhibit was outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 February 2012

The facility is beautiful; food in the restaurant is outstanding; all employees and volunteers were great. The traveling exhibit was one of the best I have seen anywhere.

“Getting Better all the time...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

The Aisan Museum is working hard on its rebranding. The first show under the new plan was a blockbuster, incredibly interesting & well-curated. This museum tries hard to reach out to the community, and deserves more support. Definitely recommend a visit...
