“A great afternoon at a beautifully curated museum”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

I spent a lovely two hours perusing the permanent and visiting exhibitions. It is soon after Christmas, so I assume this is why the museum was so empty. I enjoyed feeling like the whole place was mine. I learned a lot using the free (with $12 admission) audio guide/tour. No matter your experience with art or wildlife, I recommend a stop at this thoughtful, inviting and interesting museum.

“A Great Museum”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Very child friendly and lots to do. The free shuttle bus is an added bonus for those who do not have a car.

“Don't miss it”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

This is a truly splendid place, not to be missed. The setting is fabulous, the artwork is beautiful, and the integration of how to make art is exceptional. The children's room, with masks and costumes, is terrific.
