Architecturally impressive building with a variety of pieces both old and new. The art was excellent however for me the building and its placement up on a hill overlooking the national elk refuge was the winner. No elks were seen, but the weather made it a perfect time to stand outside the museum and soak in nature's beauty.
First: a brief confession: I never actually went in. We had so much fun outside that we ran out of time to actually see the museum. The sculptures outside were beautiful! If you've got a spare minute, it's completely worth a stop! The view from the top is breathtaking.
