“A wonderful collection of classic and western art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

It is well worth the visit to this museum. It is free to the main visits. We came in the evening and enjoyed most of the exhibitis with little interference from others. It was well worth the 2 hours we spent there. We will go back soon.

“Wonderful Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

A great exhibit of western art. The art is set up very nicely, you can wander around and see it at your own pace. The food art exhibit was fun also.
