  • This is a family friendly art museum. There are interactive pieces all throughout and anyone under 21 is free. There is art of every kind and some pieces that are still being worked on so you can see ...  more »
  • Beautiful, ecclectic art works on four floors plus an annex. Surprisingly they even had some of the Great Masters on display, Picasso and Degas among them. Wonderful way to spend a morning.  more »

  • One of my favorite art museums. Small enough to be unique and enjoyable for a day trip. Large enough to have some real gems in the collection. Docents are friendly and very helpful. The "highlights of the museum" tour is an hour well spent even though it barely scratches the surface of the collection. Kid friendly and accessible.
  • This is a very nice museum for a small town. Not many great masters, but an eclectic endearing collection, nevertheless. Beautiful building in a nice part of town with comfortable walk and great restaurants. Will return.
