“Most beautiful art and glass I have seen in any museum.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

This art and glass museum is just the right size. Too large of muesums tend to loose the person. This one captures the imagination, one finds themself studying the pieces even if they know nothing about art. They have a very wide varitey of art pieces and it is in a quiet but beautifuly designed setting. Price is fantastic, It is by donation. Please give to keep this gem alive.

“Hidden gem”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

There is a great cafe here with good service and even better food. It looks upscale but the prices are very reasonable and comparable to casual sit down eateries. There is a little bit of everything here so you won't be disappointed.

“Neat!”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I have been here 3 times thusfar. I love how some of the exhibits change periodically. Not always the same things. Of course, there are also the exhibts that never change...

My 8 year old stepson found this place very educational and interesting. He enjoyed it very much.

Be warned....right now they are under renovations.
