“A must see”
Reviewed 22 February 2014

This is one fabulous museum! Currently there is no entry fee, just donations. It is quirky and fun with lots of spectacular art indoors and out. Go for an hour or two and enjoy....

“Fun, out of the box”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

If you have an open mind about art, you'll love it. So many fun pieces to see and chuckle over. They're expanding. So....more fun and chuckles.

“joyful colors”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

What a lovely colorful place. Brings a smile to one's face. I loved the sculptures by Frederick Preston. It seemed the giraffes and flamingos were installed recently - a long trip for these sculputures to travel from the artist's home in New Mexico where we come from. This was our first visit and it is a place to go back to.

“Art and Whimsey”
Reviewed 13 February 2014

Fun to see and great to meet Mary Lee who put all this together. Artists go wild here! Across the street from the Ringling College of Art. Must see for eclectic art and sculpture. Free on Thursday from 1300 to 1600.

“Fun, Fun, Fun!”
Reviewed 7 February 2014

You start smiling when you walk in the door, and it continues long after you leave. It's such a happy place. Don't miss it.
