I especially enjoyed the quilt exhibit and was moved by the AIDS display and would have liked to have spent more time, reading bios. The toy dioramas are wonderful! It took us about 2 hours to see all of the museum and the outdoor setting is fabulous. There are a couple of other museums on the campus.

My 9 year old son liked this museum because of the Japanese kites. Personally, I didn't enjoy it too much and would have given it 3 stars.

Enjoyed the variety of art from around the globe. I was not particularly interested in the Japanese kites.

It includes so many items that I had never seen in complete form! Wonderful collection. Especially loved the collection of folk art from South America. The collection of the circus was very good also.

We've been through a couple of times, and the artwork is amazing. I enjoyed seeing all of the little details in the displays.
