“Islamic Art Exhibit”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

When you walk in the place it feels like a classic museum. Tall ceilings, tiled floors, huge staircase and large windows. I was a bit disappointed in the Islamic Exhibit. It was a collection of one person. I thought it was more of a representation of Islamic Art, but it was this person's taste represented.
She had very good taste and her Art was from her travels around the world. But, it wasn't what I expected.
I'll definitely be back for other exhibits, though. It's an amazing place.

“Well worth the visit”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

They have a wonderful collection - from outside the building looks small but inside there's quite a variety. Additionally the visiting exhibitions are great - just saw the Islamic Art one by DDFIA and it was great!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Currently the museum has a fascinating, small exhibit of Doris Duke's incredible Shangra la home with architectural drawings, photos, and artifacts from her Middle East collection..all coupled with works by Middle East artists in residence.

“Very Nice”
Reviewed 13 March 2014

I went with a friend, and was excited to see how much history was given along with the art exhibited. We especially liked the Islamic art collection and the Asian exhibit. We couldn't stay long (be sure to bring change for the meter, or pick one that takes a card!) and didn't get to see everything, but enjoyed the parts we did see immensely.
