This museum basically has 6 rooms for art that feel very empty. Two rooms held a single sculpture each. I enjoyed what I saw, but we were done in 30 minutes. We liked the gift shop, some unique items to choose from. We did not try the café. I'm not sure I could recommend unless I knew this was exactly... More

We loved this museum and the wonderful print show we happened upon. Beautiful gallery spaces and friendly guards. Lovely museum shop and the gelato was so good! We tried to buy a catalog for the show but it was sold out. We got on a handwritten mailing list, prepaid for the next shipment and it all worked out. Don't miss... More

On their website they allege to have contemporary art and somehow have received positive reviews? Perhaps from members if they have some? Although they were open, we drove 30 miles to basically an empty building.. Find something else to do!

This one looks like a box made of perforated stainless steel/aluminum plates on an elevated site near the Hillsborough River. The contemporary photograph collection inside was engaging but not mind blowing. The Greek and Roman pottery, with a... More

Being a museum geek, I found this to be one of the better ones I have been to. Parking in the garage makes it a very easy walk.

The building was big and beautiful, but the collection was small and not that interesting. The gift shop had more stuff to see. The $10 price was way to much for a 30 minute walk through.
