  • Always a treat every time I visit. Great local and national talent always on display. Featured galleries and exhibits are always being added to keep the look ever changing. You definitely have to check this place out if you like the arts!
  • I love this art museum! It is small but spacious with a variety of works. The staff are very friendly. On the second Friday of the month, the museum is free to the public. I took my grandchildren yesterday. It was both educational and enjoyable. Highly recommend!
