Very education and beautifully displayed statues and artifacts from history. It's dim and quiet environment coupled with the benches is perfect to take notes, draw, and research in each exhibit.

Really great museum. And the best is their Art Parties. Always good music, good themes and good tours. My tour guide was fantastic, the Men of Steel Woman of Wonder exhibit was really exceptional. And at this Art Party they followed it up with a showing of Wonder Woman outside! Absolutely fantastic evening.
