Great place to visit for anyone. They have an extensive collection. Saw the Picasso exhibit and the Hollywood costume collection. Check for special exhibits. There is a charge for the special exhibits.

I love this museum. It is quite diverse and well laid out. I've been visiting it for years. My favorites? Faberge and Mummies.

Recently enlarged with an excellent collection of modern art and good while small collections of more traditional areas. Very much worth seeing if you can include lunch or dinner in their restaurant.
