I love wandering around this space. One of the marks of a good museum is the ability to lose yourself in the exhibits. This one offers just that kind of atmosphere. Their variety of artwork is decent, not overwhelming, and their staff are always friendly.

The Blanton is a place I have been wanting to visit for a long time and it did not disappoint. The museum's exhibit rooms are large and airy and the displays are varied and orderly. Compared to other world museums it is small, but I'm sure that changes as time goes by and new objects and exhibitions are acquired. The separate cafeteria is very, very nice and popular. The personnel friendly and knowlegeable.
