“Great collection”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I love this art museum. I have been there twice when they had this Italian art borrowed from Italy and when they had the Sharks exhibit. Both times I was impressed at the collections and was pleased with the customer service and how polite all the employees were. I also love the cafe, once you're done, you can sit and have a light snack. There is affordable parking near and you can pay with a credit card, no spare change needed.
