This museum has some treasures. Unfortunately much of it is poorly displayed and disorganized. There is non formation on many of the displays, and no correlation between pieces randomly put together. Many paintings are hung at levels many feet too high or cluttered too closely together to enjoy them

Broad spectrum of art, design and overall explanation of how it is done. Easy to navigate around the museum.
