Perhaps I'm spoiled with art from the north such as Yale in Connecticut and many in Boston & NYC. But this place was less than exicting. Not one exhibit other than cute butterflies caught my eye. Thank God it's free...

Not a large museum but very interesting. There was a special exhibit of classic cars. On the roof was a movable frame that you could put yourself in a picture of whichever view you wanted. Fun!

I have been seeing information on TV regarding the car and motorcycle "art" show and was excited to go see it. Although the ads never said, general admission is free but not to the automobiles and motorcycles. Not a big deal as admission is $12...More

We visited this museum last weekend, and my husband was so excited to find an original Norman Rockwell! He'd only ever seen prints, and he was ecstatic. They have an interesting selection of art in various media. It's a lovely open space, bright even though...More

We made our first visit to his nice museum for the Drive! Exhibit. The exhibit was fantastic! What a collection of rare and artistic cars. My husband was enthralled. The addition of car photography and die cast miniatures was brilliant. Well done Taubman!

I love the revolving exhibits and family programming. Spectacular Saturday’s are a must! The building itself is a work of art, and over time, the staff have learned to use and view it as such!

I had never heard of this museum until I saw it listed on TripAdvisor. The permanent collection has some gems, including a John Singer Sargent and a Norman Rockwell. The traveling exhibit was sparkling, jeweled Judith Lieber purses. Well worth the trip!

There was only 1 room we could view. They were starting to set up a car exhibit. We were disappointed.

The building itself is a work of art so if you like sculpture or art this is a stop you must make. There’s an interactive area for the younger kids. Exhibits are on the second floor. They offered a wide variety of art to see!...More

There is on street parking, but it is limited. There are several parking garages near by along with lots of restaurants.
