When we first arrived we went straight for the docent-led tour. This highlighted a handful of paintings and explained the meanings behind them. We then went back to grab self-guided tour headsets which covered about 25 paintings (some already covered by the docent). I have to admit I wish it would have covered all of his works as they are beyond my comprehension and imagination. We spent about 2.5 hours in the building and probably would have taken linger if we had had the time.
You can also spend time in the outside garden and grounds surrounding the building. There is a cafe and gift shop on the premesis as well. Keep in mind it is expensive (a can of soda was $2.68) so I would recommend walking a few blocks to grab a bite at one of the many nearby restaurants.
