The museum has an excellent collection of folk art from around the world. The exhibits were very interesting. Some I enjoyed more than others. I thought the collection of retablos from Peru were facinating. The museum is definitely worth a visit.

This museum is always a treat. The traveling shows are typically spectacular. One can spend hours here and still be sad to leave when the time comes. It is great for kids and people that might say, "museums are boring."

This museum appeals to adults and kids alike. My 10 year old grandson did not want to leave! We had lunch at the restaurant right there on site. It was a great way to spend the morning!
