  • This museum is surprisingly packed full of classics. So much to see and experience. The Monet and friends LUME was there when I visited and was SPECTACULAR. Excellent day activity for a solo traveler.

  • Visits to this art gallery were enjoyable. The various artworks were attractively exhibited, with pieces that appealed to viewers of all ages. I liked how they also featured kid-friendly family activities for tourists. We'll have to return when the weather is nicer to see the outdoor garden. I advise getting tickets for the unique traveling exhibits in advance online. If you try to visit on the same day, the special exhibit showings may occasionally be packed.
  • Loved the harvest festival been to it the last few years also going to the Christmas one. But both times we've been the little section with food and drinks are closed. I feel of we are purchasing tickets and we are members, they should be open for the whole event so we can all enjoy it. What are the best times to do these events so we can enjoy it all? I was really looking forward to some yummy cider. Missed it twice now. But loved the pumpkins!! If everything was open it def would be five stars.
