Military members get in free and get to bring one adult guest for free- an unbeatable deal, thank you so much! The museum itself is beautiful and hosts a growing collection. Some of the exhibits were more miss than hit for me, but it’s all very subjective, of course. The staff and volunteers were all exceedingly nice and helpful, very welcoming environment and I will be sure to visit again!
The standing exhibits of the museum, especially the European section, are sparse, especially if you travel a lot, but the modern section, the local art, and the special exhibits are worth a 2 hr visit. Not very child friendly, all no touch areas and no scavenger hunt or other kid specific activities that I found on my visit. They have a kids museum guide, but it only features 5 pieces of art in it. It would be great if they expanded this. Entry is free for the military and their families, which was appreciated.
