We were thrilled with the manner in which the exhibits were intermixed. It is not simply a room or wing one period or type of art. But wonderfully curated manner that keeps you on your toes. We liked it a lot. And it’s free.

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.

Brought the fam here for a rainy day adventure and ended up having a nice time. There is no entry fee for this, just optional donation. There is also a place for kids to make a take home craft, this was nice!

I was not excepting a museum of anywhere near this quality. I was there for two hours and was only able to see an extraordinarily well-curated temporary exhibit, four rooms of renaissance art, the South Asian and Pre-Columbian sections. Each area had stunning selections attractively...More
