The Ultramarine blue Edward Hopper used in his work, 'The Long Leg' hanging in the American art gallery took my breath away from across the room! (Overall a lack of signage throughout the grounds kept me++ disoriented ) A+ gift shop

Food is not allowed on the grounds, but when you first come in there is a small kiosk where you can buy some things (I saw some people walking around with ice cream and coffee). There are some tables there where you can eat.
