Easy flow throughout each genre of art - not too much and not too little pieces of art. You can easily see everything this museum has to offer in a couple of hours without feeling overwhelmed or hurried. Also, Iris is a lovely cafe with local/organic cuisine and delicious!

It has something for every member of your family--children will enjoy the exhibits geared especially for them and the museum park, and adults will appreciate the world-class paintings and sculptures.
