  • Today was the museum’s anniversary. A nice layout, skipped the Dior exhibit but there’s quite a few nice pieces.  more »
  • Dior Exhibit - beautiful exhibit. Many, many gorgeous dresses. I saw a review that asked is it art? It depends on your definition. Very well presented and entertaining.  more »

  • We rode the bus downtown and made a day out of it. The bus driver was very helpful and courteous. He gave us good information on the bus tickets. He gave us a day ticket good for all that day until 3 am that morning. It was only 2.60 for our trip downtown. If you drive downtown parking is 10.00 to 15.00 for ten hours of parking. When we got to the Art Museum we found out it is being remodeled. But a small part of the museum was open. So we went in and had an enjoyable time. They had a model of the new Art Museum. It will not be completed until 2023. I hope I can still get around then. I can hardly wait to see the new and improved Art Museum.
  • We went on free Saturday and we are so glad we did! This place is huge and they have a lot of different children's activity areas spread throughout the exhibits. There were book readings, craft sections, scavenger hunt papers, and much more. It's definitely kid friendly (on free Saturday, anyway) and you can stay for several hours and still not see it all.
