What a wonderful day trip! I gave myself 3 hours and still didn't get to see everything. A lot of the museum is under construction right now but don't let that deter you - there is a lot to see and the price (free) is right! (but throw a couple bucks in the donation bin anyway!)
The variation of the artist works in here is pretty wide and amazing, a little bit of everything, from Monet and Matisse to Picasso, Boticelli, Rodin, you name it. I didn't even get to see the Contemporary exhibit but the European Painting & Sculptures, the Antioch Mosaics, and the Cone Collection will eat up many hours easily. Other areas open right now are the Contemporary Art, Modern Art, and the upstairs contemporary art area.
They do a wonderful job with posted descriptions of the works, as well as the backgrounds of the painters, and the backgrounds of the Cone family, who purchased a lot of the famous works in the exhibit hall. I think you can also get an audio tour, but since I limited my time, I did not look into that.
The staff are cordial and helpful. The restrooms are easy to find. The gift shop had a lot of fun and fascinating selections to browse. There is a very good restaurant on the premises (Gertrude's) and also an outdoor sculpture museum but it was closed (due to either the snow, or the cold weather) - can't wait to check it out in the warmer months.
Definitely a good time for families, and on a budget!
