  • A great museum, very eclectic, creative approach to collection and artist/ exhibits. A real gem in this very art-oriented city. For a relatively small space there is so much to see, read and reflect upon and celebrate. From the moment you step upon the walkway to enter the gardens you know you’re in a very special place that invites a close, peaceful exploration.
  • A gem. Beautiful gardens, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent art exhibit, history and a very moving holocaust survivor exhibit.
