“Why bother”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

The displays tend to be a zillion examples of one kind of works or one artist. The place is boring.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed January 23, 2012

The only thing redeemable about this museum was a temporary exhibit of early 1900's black and white photographs. They didn't have a museum brochure available when we purchased our tickets, which I found strange. I asked if they were just out of them, but the girl at the counter replied "No, we just don't have them. We never have."

A major portion of the museum was closed off to the public because they were changing out an exhibit. I felt that we should have been informed of this before we bought our tickets. I wanted to see actual paintings, but instead had to settle for a few photos, 10 gaudy silver animals that were donated to the museum by some local dowager, and a handful of I Dream of Jeanie psychedelic glassware.

Worst museum I have ever been to, and that includes a museum in Mexico where everything was just computer print-outs pasted to the wall.
