A lovely gem hidden set back off the road. It has a permanent collection and we happened to be there when judges pieces were on display - mixed art media - amazing, moving, spiritual, well placed items, and an airy feel. It is free &...More

This is a small museum placed in a picturesque location on the river. We saw an interesting collection of local artists, and particularly enjoyed some sculptures assembled from found objects. Also one room of paintings from their permanent collection which were turn of the 20th...More

I love art museums that feature local artists and this one doesn't disappoint. A rainy day, free admission and parking, talented artists - excellent way to spend time. Beautiful views of the waterfront just keep adding value :-)
