I was looking forward to seeing this museum. I almost always rent the audio guides in museums (I am a member of the Metropolitan Museum in NYC and do so there) but when I tried to rent the $3 tour, I was asked to leave a "photo id" i.,e., a driver's license. In this day and age, no way was I leaving a driver's license at a museum's front desk. I have never been asked to do this before and was quite annoyed at the request. Turned me off to the whole museum which in any event was smaller than I expected. Walked around the sculpture garden and left within a half hour. Wished I had gone on a Friday night when it's free. That's what it's worth.
