Walked through the museum I about 29 minutes. Most if the exhibits are folk art. And some of it is somewhat bizarre. There some lovely antiques here as well. Would recommend as supplemental addition to your museuns

I saw the Freda Kahlo photograph exhibit. This gallery did such a nice job displaying them. There is an intimacy that is warm and inviting here and I encourage one to visit.
