Indoor, outdoor - this place has it all. We love wandering around, leisurely exploring.You'll find installations and pieces everywhere and the option of bringing a picnic and/or your dog makes it even more enjoyable. Stop at the cafe for a snack or coffee.

The museum itself is pretty good, but the show stopper is definitely the outdoor sculpture garden. It's set back from the road and has a very serene feel to it. Plenty of parking.

A great place to spend a quiet weekend afternoon with children. I try to take my family to this place as often as possible. Both the outdoor sculpture area and the indoor museum area, as well as the surrounding lake scenery are great. Take as many pictures and videos as possible.

Great place to wander for hours, inside and out. Beware the Pine Sharks! (just ask when you get there)

If you have the time and a car, this place is a great way to spend a day. Bring a picnic lunch, wander around the sculpture park and then check out the modern art museum. At the top of the museum is an observatory with great views. There is also a large pond with a walking path around it. Check... More
