Caught the Alfonse Mucha exhibit and reveled at the ease of getting around this museum and getting to see three rooms full of this Art Deco founder’s works. The museum was already in high alert and exercising extreme cleaning routines and we felt comfortable throughout our visit. Outside, they have beautiful grounds that make for easy walks. Plus, make time to schedule a visit to the other exhibits, gift shop, and the Planetarium for special performances.

Went there to see the Nickolas Muray photographs of Frida Kahlo. Excellent exhibit. A wonderful traveling children’s exhibit from Omaha was there. Surprisingly, we really enjoyed the stuffed animals from around the world that were there. On the top level was another traveling exhibit of 1920s posters by Muncha. There is a balanced permanent exhibit of 20th century art.

You go from stuffed animals, Native American displays to Alphonse Mucha! It even has a lot to amuse the small children. Plus they have a planetarium and a nice little park to stroll through.

This museum is a pleasant surprise. It is enough to see and take in without being overwhelmed. Jeff at the counter was super friendly and welcoming. The animals section was fascinating as well as the art work on display. The park outside is a beautiful and free place to visit. I will return.

There is something for everyone. I enjoyed the special exhibit on costumes from the movies. Paintings were from local artists as well as very established artists. A big surprise was the extensive exhibit of animals from around the world. The children had a generous area where they could interact with the cartoon character, Arthur, a small classroom, they could be on TV and much more. We walked through the Arboreteum even though it was winter, it was still impressive.
