  • Context: their building is being renovated, they chose to remain open at half the price with "selected pieces" on display. This was huge a disappointment as I came here for their Asian art, but most of the small open section was French/European artists... Half the space was taken by temporary exhibit, and a whole room by a single art piece. I think by trying to satisfy everyone they probably disappointed most visitors, and should have closed during renovations.
  • Anticipating a great renovation here based on the way this museum has been in the past. Call first to see the status of the galleries open.
