This beautiful spacious museum was a delight. The exhibits were exceptional with plenty of space to view and understand the exhibits. We were fortunate to come when there was a dance program to enjoy.

You can spend many hours here with interesting exhibits. Don't expect to see everything in one visit. We sometimes go, just to have a meal at the restaurant, which offers tasty food and great sweets. The gift shop is fun as well, especially at Christmas....More
