if interested in art by local artists good place to go and look at really nice local paintings would recommend
My wife and I were looking for something to do for an hour or so while waiting for friends to arrive. Found the museum. Very interesting building-mesquite wood floors and very nice, unusual ceilings. Art is all western by mainly modern-day artists. Some very interesting sculptures. Unless you're really into western art, probably won't take you more than 30-45 minutes.
