“small gem”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

This is walking distance from the Rothko chapel and Menil collection, and is a beautiful little gem of a building. Historical Byzantine mosaics from a chapel in Cyprus, this is a rare treat to see in this part of the world. Fantastically set in a modern building, with great lighting and atmosphere.

“Very small--a bit disappointing”
Reviewed 14 May 2012

Expected more. Really not much to see. Better plan on also visiting some other museums. Seemed like not enough to be a separate museum. Not sure why this museum exists

Reviewed 24 April 2012

Very small - one room - recreation of a small byzantine chapel that houses the art that was stolen from the original chapel.
