Open until 9pm on Thursdays. A good array of different styles and artifacts. They offer a free audio guide too. 4 floors of exhibits set up in historical periods.

This is a local art museum with a few nice pieces. The collection is quite limited but the setting is gorgeous and the displays very nicely done.

First time here and will definitely come back. Amazing collection of art for just one family. Free admission and audio guide. We were there for 2 hours and didn't even see half of the collection.
