“A Long Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

We were walking downtown with a map that apparently was out of date. We were at the "new" mint but thought it was just a store so walked blocks to the old site where a vacant lot now stands. Back to the first stop and the museum is now open and suprise - because it is Mother's Day we get free admission. I enjoyed the exhibits and was glad we persevered.

“Interesting Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2012

We are not really into modern art, so many of the exhibits were not of interest to us. However, the Craft and Design area was fascinating. They have some really amazing objects made from glass, wood, fabric, etc.

“OK sometimes”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Totally depends on show being presented. Make the choice if it's something you are really interested in, not just for a place to go.
