“Enjoyable couple of hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Great cross-section of works...you'll definitely find something to your tastes. And great lighting so that you can really examine all fine details. Take your time if you can, there's more than enough to fill an afternoon.

“Always Great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I've been here multiple times, and always enjoy the experience--whether seeing items in the permanent collection or taking advantage of a special exhibit. On a recent visit, we saw the Terracotta Warriors exhibit from China. This past summer we enjoyed the Rembrandt portraits exhibit, and saw da Vinci's sculptures several years ago.

Entrance to the museum is free, though there are some exhibits that have entrance fees and/or require tickets.

My husband and I plan to become members the next time there is a special exhibit since members get free passes to special exhibits (among many other benefits). We're excited about supporting this fabulous organization and look forward to visiting many times in the future.

“Lots to See!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I chaperoned a class trip and we only got to see certain parts of the museum. They have a nice collection. Plan on spending the day if you want to see everything.
