  • Very nice museum. Not too big that it overwhelming, but had some very nice pieces. The gardens in the park are also very nice.

  • This collection feels intimate and warm. There are works by great artists—Picasso, Georgia O’Keefe—and works by smaller, lesser-known artists. The art is arranged well and has good information posted alongside it. Also, a wonderful collection of furniture! I particularly enjoyed the installation of family videos—truly a joy to experience!
  • Very nice! I love the sculpture garden. It was beautiful. We enjoyed it. Also the cafe was nice. They had good pastry and cakes.
