There was only one photography show on display The other rooms were empty and will be ready to show by May.
As was the case with the Georgia O'Keeffe museum, the Museum of modern Art was a disappointment. The museum may not be able to afford high quality paintings, but a private collection showing (the name of which I rightfully forgot) was an insult to art-loving visitors. Some of the earlier paintings from the museum’s collection were viewable, but do not... More
Being a state museum, in a city filled to the brim with art and artists and charging $9 a head you'd expect to be wowed. We weren't.

I... More
We visited for a very short time to enjoy the Goya exhibit, and in the process purchased a couple things at the lovely gift shop where we were warmly welcomed. We will return for a longer visit next trip!
