  • It's a small but very nice museum. Great modern art and fine art exhibits including some works from Picasso. The current exhibit on plastic is some very thought provoking work. The downstairs installations are also quite nice.
  • Multiple floors and galleries; supportive staff; kind patrons; low prices, free for students and you can get a free pass from the Forbe's Library across the street; multiple amenities; a beautiful campus right next door; even the bathrooms are nice!
