Very creative displays. No charge just donations. Great time. My favorite was the red umbrella. I'm thinking of going again and taking family. The view of the ocean was fabulous.

They were having a Lego exhibit when we were there. So that was a big hit for us. If you are visiting the area, check to see what their current exhibit is. It is right at the end of the main beach area, easy to get to. Free, donations suggested.

This trip marked my family's second trip to Frank G Burroughs. Perfect place to get a break from the beach and always have family friendly exhibits during the summer months. Gallery staff are very friendly. Admission is donation based which is great in a tourist town. Nice view from the second floor sunroom area. Lego exhibit was nice for children... More

The Art of the Brick and In Pieces are the exhibits currently displayed. With that theme there is a Lego area set up on the sun porch where you can help assemble a mural designed by a local artist and build your own creation. Two documentaries admit the artist play in areas throughout the exhibit. A gift shop with a... More

I can't say enough good things about this museum, the view of the ocean, the gift shop, the handicapped accessibility, the art work room, and the displays are magnificent and age appropriate. We visit often as we live nearby and each time it is a treat for the senses - videos portraying the artist's work and sometimes the artist actually... More

I went here the other day with 2-5 year olds, not for them, but for me! Lol This is a great exhibit and the kids enjoyed it as much as I did!

FREE. This is an excellent small museum that has interesting exhibits that cover a variety of interests. Last year they had Mandala (sand painting) by monks and this summer the Art of the Bricks (large Lego pieces) is here. The short "brickumentary" about the history and commercial uses of Lego's was great.
