My party of 10 out-of-town visitors went to this museum because it had gotten rave reviews. We had no car and had to rely on the bus system. Once we got on campus, the museum building was hard for us to find. Then we found that the last bus back to our hotel area was at around 8pm -- we were well and truly stuck. Anyway, the museum exhibits are well composed and the guided tour was highly illuminating. The online reviews led us to expect a "wow!" experience and my rather tired group (ages 10-82) found the museum to be good but not extraordinary. To my taste, each exhibit had too many of the same type of object, leaving me to think "Yes, I've got the idea." There was not enough description presented of why we should appreciate the subtle distinctions among those various items. The Bill Reid Rotunda was quite memorable. The museum is worth doing, but just go with modest expectations and they will probably be exceeded.
