The building was impressive, especially from the interior. The setting was beautiful, within a well-kept part, and with water on one side. My problem with the museum is that although there were some fairly old paintings displayed (100-200 or so years old), there was little of significant artistic value.

Since I had been traveling a lot lately, my daughter and wife flew down for a few days since I would be out of town for two weeks straight. My daughter gets a big kick out of art so we took her here. She loved it. It was free so we made sure to leave a donation.

Stayed nearby on business and had the best random Thursday night at the museum. No charge which was a surprise and the setting was wonderful, very calming, meditative. The collection had a nice eclectic range of work, one of the best children's sections I've seen in a museum, and a nice homage to self-taught artists. Worth the visit!

The Visual Arts are the main feature at this beautiful Museum. The Performing Arts are showcased in a 250 seat state of the art auditorium with excellent acoustics. This Contemporary brick structure looks as if it is floating on the water.. if you can imagine that? A spillway with a waterfall and a spinning wind structure make this place unique... More

Spent a rainy Sunday here recently and it was the perfect day to do so. It was the First Sunday event at the museum, which has a live tour with a docent, who narrates favorite works of art. Doors opened at noon and the tour began promptly at 1pm. It was very informative and made me want to do some... More

To be free, this museum is great! It has a beautiful setting on a lake that you can feed fish, turtles, and ducks. The museum itself has many different types of art and even features a fun interactive area for children. Ok, even I had fun going through parts of it! Worth a stop for sure!

This museum houses an excellent collection of American artists in an open, airy setting. The staff shared interesting stories and information about the artwork. If you go, don't miss the collection of blown glass.
