  • It's a wonderful place to visit with the family or alone. The staff is incredibly knowledgable and helpful and the fact that admittance is free is not only amazing but it says a lot about the vibe of the city. Everything from local artists to world-recognized pieces can be viewed here. Donations are not required but they are highly appreciated. The displays are held four months so you are able to visit several times a year with a new experience each time.
  • Caveat that I am a huge modern art fan: I can see how this museum wouldn't be for everyone, but I loved it. The indigenous art in the permanent collection is excellent (and, as another commenter who wasn't so positive explained: some of it is displayed by the restrooms - check it out!). The temporary exhibits were curated very carefully and thoughtfully; I really loved the experience. Anyone who loves modern / local / folk art should definitely visit. The staff are friendly and helpful too. I will definitely be back!
