“Different but small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Probably seen too many museums around the world to give it more than average rating, but they only have a very small permanent collection. So the majority of what you'll see (which is not a lot) will be temporary pieces (usually contemporary art) so you might get lucky stumble upon things you like. So might be worth a shot on a rainy day...

“Worth a visit when you are in the Collins Park area”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

A small enough museum to see in a short time and yet get some culture in the middle of an outdoor paradise. It's near the library and restaurants. It's close enough to the beach to get a look at the beautiful green water.

“a great little museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

Bass museum is not the Metropolitan but it is a quaint little museum with several interesting exhibits. I love the tapestries and can spend a long time watching and discovering new details every time i visit.
