Great collection of art in a small town. I liked that it was small enough to see the whole museum. We were able to walk through the whole museum and still have time to shop the museum store.

It's quite unexpected to find a museum with works of this quality in relatively small-town Florida. The building itself promises great things in it's wooded setting with classical reflecting pool at the entry. The interior is serene and beautifully kept with each gallery having center seating for viewing and reflection. Paintings from the Dutch masters to the contemporary line the... More

The collection is diverse. I beautiful building and garden. The collections are diverse. I rich history with up-to-date exhibits and installations. I would not think a smaller town in Central Florida would have such a hidden gem. I nice surprise for a relaxing afternoon.

the collection is housed in a magnificent building in a grassy setting with an inner courtyard featuring a water fountain and asian statues. It is know for its extensive 19th c. European collection of rural life but do not overlook the Asian collection with several extraordinary Japanese statues. Community support is evident given so many acquisitions since its founding in... More

We were on vacation and had a rainy day so we spent the day inside at the museum. We enjoyed a presentation in the auditorium about an artist. Then we spent the day viewing the the great art and displays. It was very educational.

This is a very relaxing way to spend some time. A beautiful building and garden house a very nice well rounded collection. Enjoyed the equestrian focus of one room. Would have liked to have taken photos or to have been able to purchase a book that highlighted the museums collections.

This museum is very small, but was perfect for me to peruse during a lunch break. Most of the current collections weren't my cup of tea, but of course the temporary exhibits will change at some point. I did really enjoy the Asian collection, but I was disappointed that there is no photography allowed. Most art museums I've been to... More
