Beautiful grounds, lovely gardens, and some interesting exhibits. I especially liked Boundaries. I was disappointed the digital exhibit wasn't operational, however, which was the reason I came.

This is a first rate art Museum where you will see artwork of some very famous artists. It's not to be missed and especially great on a rainy day. Go rain or sun, you will love it.

Our hotel had free passes to the museum or I may not have gone but it was definitely worth seeing. Easy to manage in an hour. Grounds are lovely. They also have a small gift shop.

As other reviewers have mentioned, the setting alone is almost worth a visit. It's sad that Henry Strater, an important artist in his own right and founder of the museum, has a wikipedia page in French, but not in English. Some of the exhibits are...More
