  • I loved the museum! The whole structure and the art pieces were beautiful! I have been taking an art history course for a while now and For the first time in a very long time I actually Understood what the art pieces meant and what the details in them represented. The piece that stood at the most to me was The Penitent Magdalene by Cesare Procaccini because it was showing life and death and beauty and darkness at the same time. Overall I had a great experience and can’t wait to go back again!
  • We very much enjoyed the docent tour "Reflections on Monet." It was an excellent way to better understand art history and concepts relevant to the Museum's Monet collection. The artwork throughout the Museum is enhanced by the creative lighting designed by the Museum staff.
  • I always enjoy myself when I visit. They have a very nice collection of Spanish art here.
