The permanent exhibitions are eye-catching and very interesting. My granddaughter was fascinated by the glass blowing and fell in love with all the items in the display. It is a beautiful venue for spending a relaxing afternoon. The gift shop holds lots of surprises and lots of books that kids will find fascinating.

What a fantastic treat! This FREE(!) museum has such lovely treasures wrapped up in a lovely structure. Perfect for rainy days or when the heat gets too much or just about anytime. Such a lovely collection with excellent presentation. And the museum restaurant is wonderful if you get a bit hungry after walking around the museum.

Very impressive museum that is free for the public. Glass exhibit is very educational as are the others. A current exhibit with photos of Rock Stars that covered several generations was also interesting. Highly recommend if you have the time

The recent renovation has made this an every better experience. Supper friendly staff and a glass collection second to none make this a very enjoyable museum. The visiting exhibits are superb. The modern art exhibit is marvelous. The new layout and combination of different art types from era together is interesting. The restaurant here is a real treat too.

The building itself is marvelous to see with some sculptures & gardens outside too. I particularly fell in love with the many interesting marble sculptures on the second floor with detailed carvings. Of course, the Glass Exhibit was outstanding. Then, too, don't miss lunch in the Wisteria Cafe!
