My whole family enjoyed our trip here. My son never left the children's section, but loved every minute sketching. My husband and I explored the collection. Worth your time. Take the time to walk the sculpture garden if the weather is pretty.

This is definitely worth a visit but make sure it is open before you go. Wonderfully realistic paintings of bison and grizzlies and lots more. Take the time to walk around the grounds for some hidden treasures.

It was $14 for adults. $12 for seniors. Less for children. No AAA discount, but it was still worth every dollar, in my opinion.
