  • I came from the city on the subway, which leaves you right off at the museum. It was not hard at all. The museum took all day. There is a lot to look at. There was an exhibit on Pierre Cardin, which costs a few dollars extra. Which was huge. And, right now they are changing exhibits. So, one floor was closed. But, still so much stuff. They sell food, if you want to take a break. Also, tables and chairs outside. Very nice. Bring comfortable shoes.Enjoy!

We ended up heading to another museum that has the good sense to not close very popular exhibits on the weekend with minimal advance notice....
