Very nice and quiet space on a gorgeous campus and beautiful polychrome Victorian Gothic revival building. It is a nice place for quiet contemplation and stroll (after all it seems to have been designed by Fredrick Law Olmstead’s firm, designer of the Central Park).

Was disappointed that the museum was closed despite online hours suggested it should be open. I didn’t think the day after 4th of July would be taken as a holiday. The people who run the museum, please list online if there are exceptions to your open hours! I was really looking forward to seeing this museum and traveled out of my way to visit it. I don’t want to leave a bad review, I’m sure it would have been a great museum had it been open. I just hope the people who run the website take note of listing special closed times online, especially in this situation where visitors can’t call to confirm hours.
