Although art galleries are not high on my list, but I was impressed. The gallery is well laid out with plenty of room to view the many pieces. There is a wide variety of paintings and sculpture. Helpful staff.

Yes you can be dropped right at the handicapped entrance. I am not sure if they have wheelchairs or scooters available. You can check their website. It is very user friendly with ramps and elevators and super nice staff!
