It was a small, but fun art museum with lots of rare artifacts(Egyptian& African)! We ended up spending over 2 hours with my kids(6 &10 years old). It was also very quiet so we could enjoy the art at the museum without any distraction.
My first time ever going. It's got some awesome displays of beautiful works of art!💜
