“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

We have been there with 2 young kids. The exhibit was interesting and well organized. It was a little crowded but it was expected. The museum is not too big and this can be a little disappointing. The gift shop is nice too and not overpriced. The cafeteria is nice and the food is good and not expensive.

“Doris Duke exhibit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

Beautiful exhibit and so interesting! The museum is nice and bright with an excellent gift shop. A docent is really helpful to get the full exposure to the exhibit.

“Great Permanent Collection”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were able to go on a day with free admission to all galleries. The permanent collection was a great mixture of ancient artifacts to Warhols. The Wangechi Mutu exhibit was phenomenal.

“Great Building, but where is the art?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

The building's architecture is sleek steel and glass and works well with the environment and landscape. The interior is wonderful - light, airy, open, however there does not seem to be much space available to showcase the collections. It seems to be more of an exhibition space than a museum. When I asked an attendant where more of the art might be, I was met with a puzzled look and a confusing response, so I enjoyed what was there and left.
