Outstanding museum, must see to appreciate, set your own pace. OK to take pictures (no flash allowed) Don't forget the children's area even if you don't have children with you. Spotless restroom's..... more »
The EPMA is a very cool place to go. *FULL DISCLOSURE- My wife works there and gives me the inner scoop. The museum store is my favorite place to go besides the exhibits. Partly because the store always has really neat stuff for the artists in your life and there’s always something fresh and original. However I mostly buy stuff from the store because a lot of the items are MADE by LOCAL ARTISTS and a portion of your purchase goes to them so they can keep creating more of what they love. As artists ourselves my wife and I fully believe in supporting/buying locally. The museum also has workshops and other events going on for the whole family. So if you want to know about what’s going on just stop in by the store or check out the website and you’ll get whatever questions you have answered. Also please remember that when you go please be respectful not only of the museum but of the folks that work there and PLEASE DO NOT COMPLAIN about the the prices of the items. There has to be a profit made not only to keep the store going but the local artists that help contribute items for sale at the store. These folks work hard not only to keep creating fresh original artwork but also to support their families so please keep that in mind. So go enjoy the museum and have fun.
Really cool exhibits especially for a free public art museum. Lots of interesting upcoming events etc. Definitely worth checking out. Plenty of close parking available for reasonable prices.
