There must be 15 galleries in this place, and the American contemporary section was quite interesting to us, but most of the place seemed as much an archeology museum than art. Lots of antiquities, which were of less interest to us.

This is a nice place to visit but relatively small. It's a good place to stop in if you have some free time. Nothing too spectacular but if you're going to visit for a special exhibit then worth the few hours.

The museum provided music, art, and well-informed guides for our visit. We spent several hours viewing the paintings from Spain and then two hours appreciating the Greek collection. My wife and I are members and have attended many lectures as well. Highly recommended for families...More

Sorry to say it was temporary and gone. We were so fortunate to see it the last day of the exhibition.
