The museum and exhibits were excellent. We went on a free Tuesday, and we enjoyed what we saw. The construction was distracting.

I’ve been coming to this museum since I was a small child in the 1960s. Always something to see. The Herman P. Dean antique firearms collection is as good as any big city museum. They always have great exhibits. Good for all ages.

We enjoyed walking through. However, expected a bit more. The gun showcase room was very interesting and had a lot there. Wish the solarium had more love.

The collection here is small, but seems to rely on traveling exhibits. One by an Australian artist is good, and another, an abstract ceramics art collection by an American named Jeff Shapiro is very good. The surprises are an excellent history of the firearm exhibit...More

Thanks for your review. The Herman P. Dean Firearms Collection was left to HMA by one of our founders during the early years of the Museum and has been a permanent installation since the 1970s. We're glad you enjoy it!

Suggest you check their website, rather than inquire at TA, for the latest, most accurate listing of hours. Pretty sure they're closed Jan. 1
