This is a wonderful 3 floors, and two Sculpture Garden Museum. The Art and Exhibits are both donated, purchased, and promised, ,by lovers of the Museum. There is a small Cafe, and very well stocked Gift Store where you are certain to find that gift for a special someone, or find something for yourself that you just cannot live without.... More

Really beautiful and interesting exhibits. Try to ignore the evidence of massive amounts of disposable income, and enjoy!

This is one of the best collections of contemporary art you will ever see in the world. The building design, outdoor sculptures, and community service provided by the center and its volunteers are all an added bonus! Support the arts and visit this museum, you will be glad you did!

What a treat - some great sculptures, including several Henry Moore's. Some wonderful western pieces and great "glass" exhibit.

This museum is a gem and I've been to many during the years we lived in Europe and Asia. Their collection is mainly modern but includes local tribal pottery and baskets. Paintings, sculpture and craftwork is all on display. If you are in the area, a must stop.
