The Spanish special art exhibit was a great surprise. Art from Spanish artists on display with a very informative write-up about the piece and the artist. The rest of the museums regular exhibits were excellent. I enjoyed the Chinese, Egyptian and the Tibetan artifacts.

Great selection of paintings, sculpture, Japanese art and costumes. The building and layout is fabulous. Very airy and spacious. Don't miss the glass elevator. If one has the time, it definitely should be on the schedule.
