“Fantastic Museum and its free”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is an outstanding museum. The African selection is particularly outstanding. The ancient Chinese and Japanese section was also noteworthy. While I am not a fan of a lot of contemporary art that section also had some very interesting material. The gardens are also nice. An it is free.
