Whether inside in the circular setting or in the sculpture garden you are in awe . Great collection of contemporary art. Sit and contemplate, become a part. Located right on the mall, with street parking.

I was looking forward to a visit to this museum, however I was a little unimpressed with the works on view. In fairness, the entire second floor was closed for installation, so there was less to see than there normally would be. I will say...More

This experience was underwhelming; not what we had expected. The staff was less than helpful at guiding, but quick to point out a toe across the lines. We didn't know whether to start downstairs or up, and soon discovered that one entire floor was closed....More

It depends how crowded it is and what exhibit is there-weekends usually require more time
