This is a small museum and I've never seen it crowded. The exhibit changes several times a year and some are more interesting than others, but all I've seen are nicely done. For a free entrance it's certainly worth stopping by.

Good little gallery for kids to learn museum etiquette. 75+ exhibits, several medium types, and good for a 30 minute stop!

The Center for the Visual Arts changes exhibits frequently, but all exhibits are always excellent. Right now (April-May 2015) the main gallery has its annual "Merging Visions" show, which pairs poetry and visual arts. A very interesting type of show, and one which encourages contemplation.
