  • I like contemporary art and this art museum is pretty cool. I will say that some of the art may be a bit too "modern" for me because it looked like my 5-year old can do it or I would ask myself "that took no time at all!" However, I did enjoy most of the art, overall.
  • It's a captivating experience from the moment you walk in. The entrance is grand in ornate wood and marble. The galleries are laid out smart for an easy flow through the museum. I went on 1/22/22 for the disestablishment exhibit. It was set an intense reminder my love to save mother earth.
