A compact museum with an interesting exhibit of art work. A few Andy Warhol paintings, etc. If you like landscaping pictures from around the world, you must see the Journalist exhibit that dates back to the 1930's. The facility is clean and spacious; and, easy to move around.

Will not go there again. I was informed that I could not take pictures there because of the focusing beam on a Sony A6000. The flash was not being used and I showed the volunteer that for the flash to be used, it had to be raised. As a result, I cut my visit short and complained at the front desk. They agreed that the individual was incorrect but they offered no solution . That was $15.02 of wasted money. Staff should be properly trained . Update - still haven't been back and never will.

Super tiny art museum. Not small but tiny. Left in 15 min. Cannot compare to big city art museums in other US big cities, and never mind to Europe. Save your $9 and goto Mint across the street. Also their cafe closed. No food.

Beautiful museum that often hosts free admission nights and events. My fave is the jazz nights in the lobby, great way to end a work wk with some live jazz. Went in a Wednesday night and they had free admission and live entertainment and food trucks on the front courtyard area. Was a lot of fun and great to see the art exhibits.
