The person who welcomed me was enthusiastic and intelligent and even connected where I am going to college with my viewing experience. I loved it.
Great experience! Art was great, but staff was even better. I took 2 5 year olds and a 2 year old. They had a scavenger hunt for us which was great to keep the kids entertained.
