Great Modern Art Collection, fantastic Sculpture Garden...the staff was very welcoming, helped us navigate the building. The layout of the structure is well done.

This museum is huge and has pieces from all cultures and periods of art. I went back to see the American art, which I had initially missed, and was so pleasantly surprised at their collection.

There was quite a bit of modern art on display. I'm not a huge fan of this style, but I recognize that is a personal preference. It is laid out nicely and I think would be attractive for many.

The location is convenient and well set up for wondering through art with just about all types of art from prehistoric though 20th century modern and post modern. executed with style and clarity. IT IS NOT STUFFY! Bring your children, too. There is also a sculpture garden but we missed it due to rain. Go and be surprised.

Its a nice place for a rainy afternoon, with a lot of history and great exhibits. Parking is $10, unless you can find street parking, and the staff in nice and helpful.

This is a large museum with something for everyone. It has some famous pieces and an interesting series showing the progression of Mondrian. It is free that is a plus and closed on Monday

One of my favourite places to wander. So much to take in and always leave feeling inspired. You will need more than one visit to see everything.

There were so many paintings, it was hard to decide what to look at in the time available. I loved the European masters and the American painters

A broad spectrum of european, asian, early american and african art; scupture, painting and artifacts, some of it quite special. Good focus on art students and children.
