The art museum is right on the campus. It’s a cool building. The building itself looks like a piece of art. A nice spot. more »
This ultramodern museum is a gem in a city of liberal art & humanities that includes theatres & museums. There is no admission fee; although a suggestion for a donation is posted. Currently there is a lovely large collection of pottery from around the world (ancient & artifacts of First Americans) and a collection from local potters too. A large single floor gallery houses an eclectic collection which is easily viewed in 60-90 minutes. NOTE: The automobile access to parking garage (not free) is off of East River Road!
Really interesting museum. It reminds me of a gallary museum with different artists. It's free admission. But of course you have to pay for parking. Parking is connected to the building. I payed 3$ for I think an hour. You might find some meters on the street down the block.
