“Current exhibits were Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I was not sure what to expect, but museum has a photography exhibit by Vishniac which is amazing and chronicled WWII and 1930's Europe. This artist was also an esteemed microbiologist and took "microimages" which were featured also. The wood exhibit was also very good and worth a stop, especially for those appreciating modern art. I noticed many tours led by docent or museum staff while I was visiting. They have a very small café and good gift shop available. I thought everything was well done. Parking was difficult to find on my visit as many were downtown for a local event.
