  • Military members get in free and get to bring one adult guest for free- an unbeatable deal, thank you so much! The museum itself is beautiful and hosts a growing collection. Some of the exhibits were more miss than hit for me, but it’s all very subjective, of course. The staff and volunteers were all exceedingly nice and helpful, very welcoming environment and I will be sure to visit again!
  • We visited the Art Museum on a hot summer Sunday. Although there were lots of visitors, this property is so massive you feel very comfortable. Allow three hours to take in all the exhibits. There are many different collections for a varied interest in art from classic European to the avant-garde. The website gives a through indication of was is currently available. Easy parking. A wonderful relaxing day that was educational and enjoyable.
