Escaping the mugginess of the afternoon, we decided to meander inside the Museum of Art. Absolutely a must see. Every level, every room displayed different elements of arts, and talents, and inspirations. No boring moments here. In addition, a jazz group performed, which was awesome...More

Really enjoyed the "Discovering the Impressionists" exhibit and the life of Durand-Ruel. What made the experience very enjoyable was the audio phones that gave history background on both Durand and the featured artists. Also, who doesn't love those Rocky steps?

Go to the Impressionist exhibit before it leaves - the museum is one of the very best in the WORLD! The permanent collection rivals any European museum.
