A nice mix of folk art, paintings, and photography. Something for everyone, inexpensive and very close to the University. The kids liked the exhibit of miniature folk art, tiny representations of common objects, people, houses, etc., some so small you literally need a magnifying glass to see them.
There are quite a few well-done paintings and photographs of people of local historical interest. Young kids have limited attention span for that sort of thing, but they did marvel at the realism of a few of the Realist paintings as we compared them to photographs and discussed the differences. There are 3 floors, with the miniatures on the bottom, historical paintings and photos in the middle, and modern art on the top floor.
When we visited, there was an exhibit of some modern photography that contained disturbing themes and sexual imagery. Fortunately, there was a person on hand to warn us that children were not allowed upstairs.
Overall, a worthwhile stop on a tour of the city center.
