One of my favorite places in the world. Containing 5% of every famous artists we can all think of, this art museum is awesome. Artwork from all over the world and pushing the importance of art; impacting everyone who looks into the past, present, and future.

The gift shop has excellent selections. As this is a pedestrian campus, parking will be difficult.
