I enjoy taking my daughter there for events. She got to taste a cricket, paint a dinosaur, dig for fossils. and some other things. We both enjoy going.

Visit if you like art. The exhibits in the two main galleries were excellent. It's a good place to take young children because in one space there was a maker activity open to all visitors.

There are several rooms in the museum. It is very nice, but small. There is always a featured artist's works and permanent displays. The lunches are excellent.

Always interesting and unique exhibitions specific to the region. The permanent collection is awe-inspiring. There is even a cafe in the heart of the museum that serves DELICIOUS food. Definitely can make a day out of visiting this art museum.

Small art venue, with a mixture of different art forms. More suited for adults as I feel children will be bored. Nice employees, easy parking.

If you're in downtown Beaumont, the museum is worth a stop, especially for the architecture of the building. However, even at a slow pace, don't expect to spend more than an hour here.

The museum was a bit smaller than I expected, however we found it interesting. There was a variety of displays with interesting paintings and other art works. We found Felix "Fox" Harris, the artist what creates art from recycled material and scrap metal very interesting....More
