  • This place was so cool. I haven't been to many art museums, but I would imagine this is the gold standard. Standard. There are items from every part of the world here, and just even being inside. Inside the building is mind-blowing. It was so amazing!
  • fabulous museum. the staff is very loyal to the museum. They practically give you a private tour. A new part of the museum will be opening. An adjoining house has been bought and donated to the museum. They are open late on Thursdays. Also the 4 the floor exhibit will be changing so you should go there to see it before it closes.
