“Very interatcive”
Reviewed 11 November 2013

I liked the Art museum because 1. It was free and 2. It was very interactive. My children liked the artwork, but also really enjoyed making their own artwork.

“High End Collection and Nice Cafe”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

This museum is small but has a very high quality collection and is divided up logically by time period. On Sunday's admission is free and they have a nice brunch at the cafe. I highly recommend the brunch and it makes a nice Sunday afternoon. Also, parking is free and in a garage attached to the museum.

“Worth the time!”
Reviewed 29 August 2013

Its does not take long to go though, unless you are looking at both the decor and the art like I was, but this little gem surprised me. Not only is there early art - medieval religious relics - but something from every century since. Both American and European Masters, this collection is one I would have chosen if I had been picking. Not a lot, but then stuff here is exquisite.
Tip: go around luch and enjoy the on-sight Cafe - good as well.

“A gem”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

For a small museum they really have a fine collection. There's parking in the back. It's worth a visit.
