“Great museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013

great collection of a variety of works from artists worldwide, from the old masters to the best of contemporary artists. Everything from sculpture and pottery to watercolor and oil paintings to charcoal and pencil drawings. One could spend days in the museum viewing all the displays.

I was hooked from my first visit. Not only it is free, but it is so diverse. A great way to spend the day appreciating great works of art. Plus the outdoor gardens are simply beautiful.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Free museum, and lovely gardens. Don't miss 100 acres when the weather is nice. Friday night movies in the summer outside are not to be missed.

“One of the better art museums in the USA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

One can easily spend an entire day museum viewing, strolling the woods and gardens, having lunch, and walking through the Lilly House. This property is a national historic landmark and the museum offers paintings by Rubens, El Greco, Van Gogh, Japanese & African art, American contemporary and furnishings. The building itself is perfect with big viewing areas, great lighting, comfortable seating, and a very good gift shop. And it's FREE!

After touring this contemporary museum head for a leisurely
walk thru the 100 acre woods. Beautiful, meditative and leaves you with a feeling of peace.
