Attraction details
Reviewed January 5, 2013

This museum has something for everyone. The art which encompasses African art, Chinese dynasty, and at times certain exhibits holds ALOT for those who really appreciate diversity and beauty. It is a beautiful building inside and out. The gift shop hold interesting item but the prize is in the art!

We found the museum easy to find, easy to park, and a balanced showing of art and sculpture in a modern facility with several nice gardens. The shows seemed well curated and right-sized so you are neither overwhelmed or wondering why you bothered to go. Outside, Hammering Man can be irritatingly squeaky. I don't remember the one in Seattle being quite so noisy.

Beautiful museum; we spent the day there. We went for the "between the wars" photography exhibit--outstanding. Lunch in the cafe was nice too.

Very nice museum. We went to the complex to visit the Natural History Museum and wound up having lunch at a cafe at the Harn. After lunch, we took a look up stairs and decided to take the time to view all of the exhibits. Another free admission.

Very nice. Great for a family visit. Lots of interesting exhibits. A very nice place to spend a rainy day, or even a sunny one.
