The collection is very well laid out in an elegant building (inside). A great place to have lunch and spend the morning or the afternoon. Would have been better if not so many areas were blocked off for work in progress. The cafe food is very good and the wines are good and reasonably priced

Free? Amazing. If you don't want to pay to park, just park down the hill and walk up. Some great Impressionists and Van Goghs.

There is a wide variety of collections at this museum. Unfortunately ex didn't get here until 4:00, and the museum closed at 5:00. We had to blow through most of the exhibits. We saw the American Gothic collection and then quickly viewed the Asian and American art. We raced to see Dutch Masters, Impressionists and English portraitists. There was a... More

I loved the Princess Diana Exhibit. It brought back so many memories and the displays were lovely and so well coordinated with the music and pictures.
