Nice exhibits. We particularly enjoyed the Edgewood and Japanese chests and armor and art sections were very nice. The Japanese exhibit was once much more extensive. We would have liked to revisit all those artifacts again.

Third Space was my favorite exhibit. Several pieces trying to convey some pretty deep messages. I used the artsmart link on their website and played audio about the pieces. Added to the experience. Italian art collection impressive. There’s also large sections of pottery.
