The art is great ( Roman, Etruscan and Greek ). High quality, some truly novel pieces and interesting presentation by theme ( comedy, theater, etc.). What truly makes this museum exceptional is the setting - the architecture and design of the buildings and spaces. A feast for the eyes. Even the cafe had good food and was not totally outrageous in price. I liked the museum shop, as well. Unfortunately, we had way too little time here. If I go back and I will, actually, I would spend at least 5-6 hours to have a relaxing experience. Considering it is free, except for the $15 parking fee, it is one of the best deals around. In fact, if you go and see the Getty Center ( which is also great ) on the same day, you only have to pay 1 parking fee and that makes a great deal even better. The only negative is that you will have to make each visit shorter than it deserves. If you go to the LA area and you don't see these museums, unless you hate art, you are cheating yourself. Go.
