“Don't Miss It!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

This is a small museum of superior quality. The permanent collection of European paintings is outstanding. When we were there, the special exhibit was art (colorful modern paintings and sculpture) by Chick Schwartz; we had never heard of him and seeing his creative, thinking outside the box work was a definite plus. Nice gift shop, too :)

“Worth the trip to see this museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We were quite surprised at the quality of this museum. It's a very nice building, well laid out, with a good selection of sculptures, paintings, ceramics, etc. Worth the trip and about two to three hours to see it all.

“nice concerts outdoors”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

Museum is great for a one time visit for me unless they have a special showing. I do like the outdoor concerts they have sometimes.
