  • The paintings from late 19th century was impressive, though I didn't care for the modern ones. The building itself and the view from the sculpture yard were great  more »
  • Not a very large museum and one gallery was closed but it was still worth the visit. We arrived an hour before closing which is not enough time for a proper tour, but we did enjoy our time there...  more »
  • 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.
