  • What an awesome museum! I was visiting out of town from Raleigh North Carolina and was super impressed! We saw the MONET show and stopped in to the clothing showcase also. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The show was spectacular and shouldn't be missed even if you aren't into art it was such a wonderful presentation and to feel like you were in the picture was unbelievable! There were children chasing butterflies on the floor and wandering streets. I can't say enough good things about the show and all the many shows on the other floors AND then there are the grounds! Wow! So much to do and see and a paragraph doesn't begin to describe it! I will be back!
  • This was a fun art museum to visit. The different works were displayed well & had pieces on display that attracted all ages. I appreciated that they even had family activities for younger visitors to do. We will have to come back to view the outdoor garden when the weather is nicer. I would reccomend purchasing tickets online in advanced for the special traveling exhibits. Sometimes the showings of the special exhibits are full if you try to visit the same day.
