Put this at the top of your sightseeing list. We've gone three times, and while there is always something new to see, the standing exhibits are fantastic, too. We've brought guests who are blown away. Don't miss this!

I loved this museum and was so glad I spent the day. It has six floors and there is so much to see. The gallery of Pulitzer Prize Photos was amazing and my favorite part.
