The collection in the gallery is spectacular. Our membership to Dali is over in one month and we were considering becoming members However, because of your security person John G. we have reconsidered He was rude and creepy. He followed us around making us quite uncomfortable From following us downstairs to the ladies room to staring at us non stop... More

This is a big museum with a wonderful array of exhibits. If you go on a Thursday evening after 5 pm then you can go in for $5. The museum is open until 8 pm so you can spend 3 hours going through the galleries. However as I can't take it all in I prefer to go whenever I can... More

I was very pleased with the museum and all it contained. They have some wonderful paintings in their collection by some famous painters like Monet, Matisse, Boudin, Renoir, Gauguin, Picasso & others. There is much more than just paintings here though. I spent a few hours here and could have spent more. Well worth your time if you enjoy museums.

The museum had a travelling art display of Monet and Matisse art. There were not many art works by the two artists advertised, so we felt this was false advertising. The rest of museum was interesting but no great works to see.

We visited the museum to see the Monet to Matisse exhibit which, as another reviewer stated, was very small. ((I would also like to point out that there were more Monet pieces in the permanent collection than in this one). While we were at the exhibit there were not less than 3 guided tours occurring simultaneously. The docents conducting the... More

The museum is a wonderful place to unwind and enjoy the many great displays. If you're lucky, there may be a special display when you go!

This is a wonderful museum and has some really fine works of art contained within! As someone who grew up in NYC near museums I was thrilled to see this was up to par with the biggies -. Just smaller in scale. Don't miss it!

There is a great variety of art to view and there are always special exhibits. This month is their 50th anniversary and they have a display that includes Monet. There are photos of beaches from all over the world. There were quite a few people due to it being spring break time. There is usually free parking but we had... More
