Awesome selection of art for people of all tastes. The presentation and description plaques are phenomenal. I really enjoyed looking at the Inuit art exhibit.

This museum is an amazing masterpiece completed with something for everyone. I personally liked the abstraction color+ politics section of the museum. It is completed with 11 unique paintings which all could either mean nothing to you or everything to you. Some of the paintings are even 3D so they just feel different. Overall a great museum and I would definitely go back again.
