  • Nice little attraction in downtown Columbia. The museum isn’t that big, but has a good variety of art on display. Ticket prices are cheap, and the museum is near other restaurants and things to do. Would probably keep you entertained for an hour or few, depends on your pace and whether or not you take your time and read and really observe everything. It is kid friendly as well.
  • This was a great and relaxing experience. You never realize how a piece of art can give you so many emotions. I was lucky enough to see some pieces from Rodin, but what brought me joy and peace was the light boxes from Aniya. Truly need to see these exhibits and so much more.
