Firstly I have to admit that the reason I won’t give 5 stars to this museum was the $15 fee, even though I enjoyed viewing the various exhibitions I felt that it was definitely overpriced. Fairly small museum with gallery spaces on 4 levels, we...More

A range of beautiful, clever, unusual exhibits to look at demonstrating some skilful artisanal work. The section displaying jewellery has some exceptional pieces. There are also things to amuse such as Putins Coronation Crown.

My husband and I enjoyed three exhibits at our recent visit to the Museum of Arts and Design: La Frontera—Encounters Along the Border. What a moving display.

This is not a conventional art gallery or museum, so I suppose it won't be for everyone -- but art doesn't have to be famous or conventional to be interesting and/or beautiful. Unfortunately this is a small museum; I wish I could have seen more....More
