Though I graduated from Cornell in the era in which this museum was brand new, I had never actually visited it. It was a bit of revelation. It has a nice eclectic collection, especially in the Asian and Near Eastern galleries on the top floor. It also sports wonderful views of the surrounding areas. Do not miss the "everything that won't fit in the other galleries" room that is a bit hidden on the lowest floor. It has a wonderful collection of items from all over the world, including suits of Japanese and European armor. There is also a view into an interesting Chinese Garden from that level. Our visit was a bit rushed because we entered only an hour before closing time, but we very much enjoyed the short time we had.
