  • My school had an art exhibition there and all the students in art class had showcased their magnificent artworks. It was a pleasant experience and I had fun hanging out with my friends there!
  • Intuit changes the artwork there every so often so you can visit to see new works presumably every month or two. They do have restrooms along with a gift shop (some things are subject to be overpriced; Intuit shirts are $20). The second floor is for staff so don't try to go upstairs; feel free to explore the first floor as you want. Their opening and closing times are reasonable, and they were able to replicate an entire room from the mid/late 1900s which you can find in the back in which you can find out about the background from reading the displayed plaques. They show a good variety of different forms of visual artwork from 2D to 3D with different sculptures, art styles, designs, and more. Nice place to visit in your free time and could potentially somewhat be a romantic place depending on the couple's taste.
