  • Very diverse museum that is not overwhelming. While we were there, a fabulous glass exhibition was there. The architecture of the building also is interesting.

  • Any art, history, or art history enthusiast will absolutely love this museum. It doesn't get crowded, has a very beautiful collection of American art and a smaller but still as beautiful, European art collection. As with all art museums, it's a very peaceful walk through the halls here. Takes about 3.5 hours to go through it all.
  • We pre-registered for the before hours tour. It was amazing, and fun! There were only 3 of us on the tour, and while there were additional staff in the museum, it felt like we had the place to ourselves. Being able to see these pieces in person was definitely the highlight, but also some interesting lesser known pieces were fun to learn about, and exploring the cabinet of curiosity gave me so much joy!
