We went on the "Free Thursday"(4 - 8 PM) time. It is a nice layout with modern, classical, Meso-American, Western, and interesting exhibits. It's a casual two hours to get through most of the museum, but three or more hours seems a little bit more realistic to see it all.

If the architecture of the building doesn't impress you, the art will. The variety of the art appealed to young and old in our group and we all thoroughly enjoyed our visit. On Thursday evenings, it's free and there are many people who take advantage of it and then go over to Village Fest a block over. I highly recommend this for couples, families, singles and anyone of any age. It appeals to all. Our five and eight year olds said, "That was great!"

Self tour of history and art. Beautiful building, helpful staff, super location near downtown. The museum offers movie night, walking distance to other attractions. I am not knowledgeable about art but enjoyed what i saw.
