  • Kirkland was a painter of the 20th century, whose work reflects different currents who crossed his era, but he was above all a lover of objects and furniture, which formed an impressive collection ranging from Art Nouveau to the 1970s. 80. in a small space, this Museum presents a number of paintings, sculptures, furniture, lamps, dishes and objects of all kinds, with heart to reconstitute environments. Of course we're opposite designs sleek currently in vogue! But I loved this Museum, which corresponds to the Capernaum there is in me and in my head :-)

  • This new fine and decorative arts museum is excellent. Kirkland’s work went through numerous styles and phases. You’re bound to find some of his works that will delight. Kirkland painted what he wanted to, rather than what was always commercially popular. Some of his works leave me cold, while others are simply breathtaking. But the star of this collection may we’ll be the decorative works. Although the decorative arts collection is broad and excellent, the mid-twentieth-century is particularly fine. A lot of love, care, knowledge and investments went into the mid-century modern collections on display here. The groupings are arranged in sensible rooms that place the objects in proper design context. It just makes sense. My only complaint is that not all lights are illuminated, and some of the labels are obnoxiously large. That distraction can be forgiven in light of what has been shared here with the public. Fortunately there is an age restriction at this museum. There are no uncontrolled children to be seen. No screaming kids threatening to knock over the works. Thank you, very much! Parking is provided on site, although the price is higher than on the street. If you’re staying longer than a couple of hours, there may be a bump-up charge for the privilege of convenience. We spent at least three hours here, but most people can probably see the highlights in 2. I highly recommend a visit!
  • Always an interesting collection of house-ware items, furniture, and artwork from different designers, artists, and architects from the last century or so. Since moving to this new location there is plenty of room to spend as much or little time as you’d like wandering from room to room. Should you have any questions, the volunteers are knowledgeable and approachable, and you can tell they enjoy the museum just as much as the patrons. Affordable for a day visit but if you plan on coming more than once in a year, sign up to be a yearly member- you will never get bored of coming here and will see new things each time
