I was very pleased with the size of the facility and the quality pieces of artwork on display. There were exhibits from Africa, Asia, India, North American Indian, Greece, Rome, etc... Its almost as if your literally walking through history. There was so much to see. Expect to be there for at least 2 hours if you truly want to immerse yourself in the different cultures represented. You CAN take pictures, but NO FLASH allowed! ENJOY!
Excellent collection of ancient (south) American, Greek, Roman artefacts. A nice Indian (India) exhibit too. Wear comfortable shoes, the floor is hard on feet and knees and there are very few benches to sit. Third floor had visiting exhibits and coffee shop (closed when We visited). Plenty of restaurants close by. Admission price is reasonable for such a collection and spent an enjoyable day there.
