  • Wonderful art museum!. Buildings are modern and beautiful. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They have a large collection of both modern and historic artwork and exhibits are very interesting. They also have a parking garage which is conveniently located and made it easy to access the museum. They have two restaurants on site. We went to the more causal cafe to get a snack and food/drinks were good. There is a lot to see so plan to spend at least several hours here.
  • Well done museum with great colors and lighting. All the little rooms and hallways, passageways give intimacy to the art provided. It makes me feel like I could enjoy without a lot of people around. Good selection of exhibits, bathrooms are always close. Tip: Take the elevator to the top, work your way down. The map isn't a good guide and it seemingly leaves out a lot of the museum.
