My wife and I spent four hours at the Institute. At the time, a traveling Ansel Adams exhibit was in-house, which we greatly enjoyed. Facility is clean, modern, and bright with many enjoyable works of arts and crafts, including a Jackson Pollack piece, a room of Hudson River School works, some beautifully crafted Victorian furniture, and a nice, albeit small, collection of abstract works by the likes of Kandinsky and Klee.

I enjoy MWP so much.. A different experience every time. The 75th anniversary exhibit is interesting and exciting to see new items added to the collection. The Ansel Adams (just closed) exhibit was fantastic. I learned so much about him from a talk given by his former assistant. Tours, talks, movies, entertainment, MWP has it all. Get on their mailing list so you stay in tune with all they have to offer!

You get to see an old mansion: beautifully decorated (in our case, for Christmas), but it also contains a complete doll house (furnished) and many children's toys in great condition. A guide can answer your ?'s. The other side of the property has a walk-thru to a modern museum. Last Fall had a woman's bridal gown exhibit. While we were there, they had Ansel Adams photos, so, exhibits change along w/the regular collection. We saw the originals of the 4 stages of a man's life. When you do, you'll recognize at least one. Free parking behind the museum. Worth a look. We stopped, as we were close enough to make the stop.
