“Closed until 2016”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

This place is awesome and cheap, but it is currently under construction until 2016. It should be really cool once they get done adding on though.

“Closed til 2015”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2013

A lovely art museum, although much smaller than even the art museums in Cincy and Indy. Some really wonderful pieces. Currently closed due to a major renovation. So disappointed they'll be closed for so long. But can't wait to see the opening.

“Speedy Recovery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2013

The Museum galleries and Art Sparks are temporarily closed for construction. But when they were open the museum rivals those of NY and Phila. You need not be interested in art because there is a bit interesting things for everyone. The audio guided tours were helpful to my relatives who do not understand art.
