If you like art you could spend hours here, and I advise taking it by sections, at a nice leisurely pace, and planning a return trip for what you don't have time for since admission is free. That's right, FREE! There is also FREE parking nearby! It is a beautiful place, with a lot of art pieces. If you are just a semi-fan of art you can still enjoy it and just move on to each piece that catches your eye. I would still allow for at least 90min for this since there are 2 floors full of paintings, sculptures, ceramics, tapestries, screens, and etc. Sometimes, if you time it right, they have special family events. If interested I would contact them for details and dates. I have gone here with my son, and he has gone with friends from high school. It is right in a local bus route (route #11) so using public transit to get there is easy if you don't have a car. Also, it is right next to the Children's Theatre so you could go to the museum in the afternoon and the Theatre that night. What a great day that would be.
