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

I love coming into this store because I always find something to buy and you never know what you will find. All kinds of textiles, wood, materials to use in art projects. The prices are fabulous, thus the reason to come in here. It's a fun place of recycled objects and textiles.

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