We went with family and very much enjoyed the art, sculptures and the beautiful architecture and details of the home. The art glass was amazing, my favorite after the painted ceilings and iron work in the home. We came late in the day so the price was a little steep for the hour we had to spend inside but enjoyable all the same. Take time to pause in the courtyard. It's relaxing and the tiles are exceptional. A little difficult getting onto the property if you don't know the area because of the construction work being done at the front of the property. Visiting the outside sculptures make for a relaxing walk through the grounds if the weather is fair. We will return.

This is a beautiful home, the architecture and details of the home itself would be a reason to visit. The art collection is very interesting, Modern is the title, but some things would not necessarily be in that category, not abstract (although there is that also). Some very modern items also. Lots of American artist. Only down side was the upper floors were not open (due to Covid-19?). They took our temps at the entry and had had sanitizer frequently through the museum. It’s quite a walk in the 100 degree temp from the parking lot, so not easy to have a “normal” temp when you get to the door. I assume they would let you rest for a few minutes if you did not pass the first time. They also have an interesting outdoor sculpture garden which would have been more enjoyable had I not visited in August. Excellent museum and I will visit again.

Very interesting place to visit,but the staff were EXTREMELY sensitive about masks. I had one on,but pulled it away to speak, and a guard was right at me about it. Needless to say,I understand, but I think the response was over the top.

What a wonderful surprise to find art from the 1400s to modern shown in this beautiful home. So many famous well known artists that each gallery was a great experience. Then take a walk in the gardens.

Any gallery with an El Greco will work for me. There is so much good art in this building and it is very diverse. The building itself is gorgeous. The staff were all very friendly. The audio tour available by phone was playful and provocative. And the movie about the founder well worth the 15 minutes. Nothing bad to say and everything good. To see all the exhibits and the grounds would two hours minimum. We loved our meal at the Purple Garlic right next door.
