Fantastic museum. This is beautiful space that is very well laid out. There is an excellent permanent collection, and creative temporary exhibits. The glass collection is amazing. Entrance is free (I think they should have at least suggested donation on entry). Parking is easy and $8 just behind the museum.
An absolutely wonderful experience. The museum has a wonderful selection of art from across the centuries. No matter your taste, you will find something you'll like. The staff is polite and knowledgeable. When you are planning your visit, you definitely want to block out at least two hours to get the most of your time.
