“International Folk Art Festival”

This was one of the best folk art festivals I have ever attended. The quality of the folk art and the diversity was amazing. Prices were good as well. Plan to attend next year!

“Glad I visited”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

I especially enjoyed the quilt exhibit and was moved by the AIDS display and would have liked to have spent more time, reading bios. The toy dioramas are wonderful! It took us about 2 hours to see all of the museum and the outdoor setting is fabulous. There are a couple of other museums on the campus.

“Pretty good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

My 9 year old son liked this museum because of the Japanese kites. Personally, I didn't enjoy it too much and would have given it 3 stars.

“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

It includes so many items that I had never seen in complete form! Wonderful collection. Especially loved the collection of folk art from South America. The collection of the circus was very good also.
