We visited for a special exhibit but came away very impressed with their permanent collection as well. It is a modern, open accessible building with a surprisingly robust collection of European and American impressionists. Definitely worth a visit.

This is a must see stop if you are in the area. Such wonderful pieces of art here in this unique Museum. Works by Remington, Homer, and so many other great artists. We will go back next year during our winter visit.
