“Very good collection of multiple eras -- Excellent way to spend a morning or afternoon”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

This museum features a collection that spans the centuries and features forms of art that both old and young can appreciate. Not just paintings but armor, weaponry, sculpture, etc. This museum compares well to the National Art Museum in Washington in my book. A very good way to spend a morning or afternoon. and I believe there is a kids art station on the lowest level for the younger kids.
