Perfect way to spend the morning out of the heat. A surprisingly varied collection for the size of the museum. Well thought out displays of European and Latin art.

Great museum that is free to visit! There is so much to look at. Definitely a great addition to the community. They have events listed inside for members of the art exhibit. The halls are wide enough that you could comfortably bring children and have them by your side without risking them knocking into anything expensive. We went over a weekend and it was not very busy.
There was no fee to get in. The security guards were so friendly. You cannot take big bags or bottle water in but they will let you out it in a storage area. The Art was amazing!
