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.

I really enjoyed the range of cultures represented in this mid-sized museum. Wonderful sculptures and pottery.

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 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.
