Great area to experience the local artists and their work. Loved it! Look for local coupons to use for entrance fees. The museum has lots of quirky as well as traditional pieces. Lots of mixed media pieces. Behind the museum visit the hot house. The glass blowing demonstration was awesome!!! Took a zillion pics there! Beautiful glass pieces in their store. They have classes for all ages (for a hefty fee) - look between the museum and the hothouse to see the "gallery" of classwork. They had a lot of younger classes work shown when we were there...paper jelly fish suspended in air. My hubby even enjoyed this visit, and he thinks some of the newer artwork is bizarre, but enjoyed the majority of this, especially the glass work.
