The art that was displayed by Nick Cave was very interesting and beautiful, but I was expecting it to be just one feature in a bigger art museum. Although it was neat, that was the only thing displayed, so there wasn't much more to see. They did have a really cool kids section, but we didn't have little ones.

The saving grace was the gift shop! We actually had more fun browsing around the gift shop than the actual museum.

We only expected to quickly walk through with our 12 & 13 year old granddaughters but the desegregation exhibit fascinated both girls and they asked many questions about 'why did people act that way'? Following the desegregation exhibit we walked through the Nick Cave exhibit and the girls had to pose with each sound suit. To finalize the day we spent several hours in the creativity centers and the girls were enthralled by the activities. A great way to spend time with loved ones and learning about our history!

They only had Irvin Penn exhibition going on. We didn't know who he was but the price of $6/pp seemed good enough to find out. What a beautiful collection of photos. There is also a hands-on art studio where you can practice different mediums. I could have spent all day there.

This museum is in the old Post office, which is a beautiful building. There was only 1 exhibit besides the one focused on art for kids. It was the Nick Cave Feat. exhibit and we really enjoyed it. The art was interesting and I would live to see of his work. I would recommend this art museum as the exhibits are constantly changing.

Unfortunately, we found the building (the old post office building) to be more compelling than the art exhibits. There were two B&W photo exhibitions & one Nick Cave sculpture. The Cave exhibit is unique & worthwhile. However we had already seen an earlier version of this in Boise ID.
