Took my 6yr old granddaughter expecting to stay no more than an hour. Thought she would be bored by that time. Ended up staying all afternoon. The children's corner was well stocked with materials for hands-on activities & she thoroughly enjoyed the high lite-Brie boards. Will definitely return.

We visited the museum with our three children that range from 17-10 years of age. I must say that I feel as though all three of my children had a nice afternoon. There were several modern artists that mesmerized not only my children but my husband and I as well. Admission is free but there is a donation box out... More

Zero cost when we went the first week of August. Small kid area near entrance was hot and filthy. My child still wanted to play in there with the other kids- much to my horror. There was no staff supervision in the kid area so unsupervised children were free to destroy the place. The rest of the museum was clean... More

We spent a lovely two hours touring this museum. The glass exhibit was gorgeous, and the special exhibits were wonderful. There's a gallery of miniature rooms - they were amazing! The gift shop had some gorgeous things, from very expensive to very reasonable, including some great toys that you don't find everywhere else. No admission, but they take donations. Free... More

It's a smaller museum but it's beautiful inside and outside. They have a lot of things for children even a kids play corner. At the top floor you can step out on the deck over looking a beautiful view of downtown that I definitely recommend even if that's the only reason you go! Plus the museum is free! Also, the... More

I visited the art museum today with my mother and son. I had such a great time. The staff were so kind and friendly and helpful. They all had smiles. The museum was clean and the art was stunning. Thank you for making our Sunday a memorable one.

We enjoyed the glass exhibits of this museum. The only negative was that we visited during a time of kids art classes. So, the museum was a little busy with little hands. This was a pleasure to see the activities, it did take away some from our experience.

Our first time going was with a group and the docent/guide was very informative, helpful, and took time for questions. We had a wonderful time learning and seeing new things. After the tour was over we wondered around enjoying all the exhibits and many beautiful works of art. They have a really nice gift shop with much to choose from,... More
