Amazing exhibit of Guo Pei couture. I will definitely keep an eye out for other exhibits coming through. Very pleasant experience overall. Could use an update in their ticketing system to accommodate online purchases so that we don't have to wait in the same line as those purchasing tickets that day.
Here for the first time because of the Guo Pei exhibition. Seems like it was popular. They extended the exhibition for an additional week. However, even popular, it was never unbearable. The staff very friendly and helpful. Really loved how they had a guided tour at 1 pm. The docent was helpful, knowledgeable, and very friendly. Asked questions and she was able to answer. The outside they had live music, plenty of places to set and enjoy food and beverages in the nice summer weather. They happened to be giving out free samples of fruit pie this day. Win!
