Visited the Jepson to see the Monet to Matisse show. Worthwhile! I will admit that my rating is spiked by that exhibition. The remainder of the museum was good. Still troubled by Erin Johnson’s solo exhibition "Heavy Water". The brief, fleeting images of the wild...More

We enjoyed this exhibit, but there weren't very many pieces so it only took a half hour or so. The ticket price also includes admission to other attractions, but this was our primary interest.

Beautifully constructed museum with lots of exterior light! There is also a childrens area with a tactile, hands-on experience. The Bird Girl is on the second floor, but it is difficult to take photos because there is a window with lots of light behind it...More

Friends are members and took us as their guests to see the Monet-Matisse exhibit. We visited both the Jepson Center and the old mansion location across the street. I enjoyed both, but deducting a star for the admission cost. Seems steep for this museum.More
