Great museum, and it’s FREE
Oct 2021 • Friends
Awesome free museum. Looking for something both indoor and outdoor then this is the place. So much fun history as well as gorgeous grounds filled with art to get lost in. Make sure to take a few hours as there are two buildings plus the outdoors to walk through. The Café is great too with reasonably priced food and coffee

Large variety

We went to the museum on the hottest day of the summer so we didn’t do the walk outside. There are 2 buildings filled with a lot of wonderful pieces. All of us enjoyed our time there. They have 3 Monets and one was out. There are benches scattered throughout the museums to rest or reflect. There are 2 places to eat. There is no admission fee. You can donate.

Enjoyed this museum. Had a great mix of works from contemporary to classics. Very nice "campus" as well to walk around and enjoy the outdoor installations.

What a beautiful indoor and outdoor experience offered free (except social exhibits) to all. A diverse collection of art and sculpture in a peaceful setting. Staff was polite and helpful.

Beautiful museum and grounds
Jun 2021
We went specifically to go to the Art in Bloom which was so very beautiful to walk through and see. We also walked through some of the grounds and love seeing all of the art scattered throughout. Very well kept. We only spent about 2 hours here but could have spent longer.

Great state museum with a rotation of interesting art from other locations. A heavy emphasis on "minority awareness" with some apparent bias. The Egyptian collection was good, but a little overpriced.

How big is this museum??? AWESOME
May 2021 • Couples
This museum goes on forever!!! There was an Egyptian mummy exhibit this was the only exhibit that had a cost to it however when we went it was on family day and it was free! I would suggest calling ahead of time just to see what the prices are or if it is indeed a family day. There are TWO separate buildings as well as sculptures outside on the grounds so even if you don’t go during the time that the museum is open you can still see plenty of sculptures on the park grounds. This museum is set in a park and it is very impressive!! If you are ever in the area it is must see and it’s free!!
