Friends told us about this museum and we're glad they did. Admissions is free. Won't take up too much of your time. Can spend maybe a hour there.

Beautiful new space! Wonderful items on show with interesting and thought-provoking blurbs. I was particularly interested in the conversation around provenance. My parents needed wheelchairs, which were quickly provided.
Beautiful museum, inside and out, with fantastically curated exhibits. Friendly, knowledgeable staff. Very clean with ample seating areas. The student intern exhibit was nicely done. Ancient artifacts, paintings, sculptures and more. Parking can be an issue, it is a hoppin college town, but worth trip.
