Art is not my thing I guess. I love walking around the Natural History Museum more, but was there with my son and a group of kids. We had a guide which made it very boring. Would rather have walked around myself. The Asian wing is lovely and the garden is beautiful. Very well done.

The art museum has diversity. It is fabulous and free. (Donations accepted). Fee to park on weekdays. There is a cafe downstairs and a nice exhibit outside, with water and pond. We combined this with other things like outdoor walking paths. It was good. Hope to see more museums in the area.

I'm not much of an art fan, so I probably didn't appreciate this place as much as someone who knows art would, but I know that it's amazing enough because I was intrigued and impressed with the whole place.

a small museum on the university grounds. It was a very pleasant surprise to see how lovely it is. The galleries are all on one ground level. Very interesting exhibits with changes monthly. I went in December and I am going once more in January while I am still in the area. The attached Cafe was nice for a break.... More

Current displays that change fairly often along with a strong permanent collection of local, international art...with a visit and a docent tour if you get a good docent

Great museum showing different artists. Well laid out. Visit the gift shop it is quite nice not crowded easy for everyone to walk around. Don't think small children would like it but it is excellent for adults

This place has a lot of great exhibits throughout the year. I enjoy coming here every time. Definitely a multi-use location for dates, friends, family, or simply to look and meditate.

The Harn is not large and is located next to a terrific kids museum with a beautiful butterfly enclosure. What I enjoy about the Harn: Parking is free Local artists are shown The South Asis wing ( newly opened ) is exquisite in its selections and settings) The permanent exhibits are interesting The light is good; the gift shop charming....

It is a good visit and tour guides are available. It is small but a good break in the day. Don't miss the gift shop !!! Many artists work available for purchase.
