I went for a lecture and wished I had more time to visit the museum from the few exhibits I did see. They also place copies of the prints around the city on building and such to promote interest in the museum.

I really like this museum for families, even ones with young children. The weapon's room should really entertain them! The bottom floor is an entire interactive play room for children of all ages! Whether you spend an hour or all morning, it is fun and relaxed. I love that it's free because you don't feel like you need to spend... More

A beautiful, restful oasis. Galleries are well laid out and each piece is well presented. No charge for entry. Well worth the visit and it seemed that kids were treated with great respect!

Free admission is always welcome and at this fine museum, much appreciated. We are repeat visitors having viewed exhibitions approx. 5 times in the last 2 years.

Admission is free and you can park on the street for about $1 per hour. My favorite room was the "Chamber of... More
