Everyone in our party, ages 8-77, enjoyed the museum, despite some reluctance to enter. It's small, but roomy, so it's easy to take everything in. The art was varied enough that everyone found something of interest, and the chair exhibit was thought-provoking for creative, political,...More

This is a great little museum. It has rotating exhibitions that change periodically. There was a great display of ceramics (ran from 12/14/18 thru 4/7/19) while we were visiting. You should allow at least an hour when visiting the KMAC Museum.

On a cold day after attending a rally I thought why not stop in here? Fortunately, it’s a free museum(funded by Delta Dental) with two floors of exhibits. It’s a small art museum with rotating exhibits that can be quite interesting. It’s in a cool,...More

I was dissapointed when I visited several years ago but tried again. This time not having to pay an admission free really helped. Crafts from permanent collection on top floor were disappointing. But video installations on second floor were very good. Gift shop still the...More
