  • Verrrrry interesting...Art is a matter of opinion. Some of these artistic pictures, sculptures and creations weren't pleasing to the naked eye, so take a closer look. Several items will blow your mind! End result? Awesome.
  • Cool little museum! Doesn't take long to wander through, great location
