“Museum of huge plastic genitals”
Reviewed September 24, 2012 via mobile

I'm all about nudity for the sake of art but this museum had huge plastic genitals.
I wouldn't take small children there.

“great for events”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

I attended a work party here and it was wonderful. The art was fabulous (at that time there was a Warhol display being featured) and the dinner and drinks were also awesome (not sure who catered it). It would be an awesome venue for a wedding or party.

“not what I expected”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I enjoyed the museum, but I was hoping to find other artist, not just local ones. I recommend going to see the local artist, but don't expect to see world famous art.

“Art with a flare for music”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The museum not only changes its exhibits frequently so as not to bore the visitor, but the Friday night Alive After Five music venue is one of the best in the area.

“Visit often”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

Not a large museum but amazing good art shows. Covers a large range of genres. Good gift shop. Building a very good permanent collection.
