Houses in a lovely French style building, this Fine Arts museum is worth a visit. Beautifully and well curated exhibitions. Cute little souvenir shop adjoining. The only criticism would be that not all exhibits were in English.

It is nice to go to this free museum and spend here an hour or two. It has a nice collection and the building is worth it too.

If you are walking by, peek in and look at the building and glass ceiling, otherwise skip it. There really isn't much art there. I love art museums and this one was very disappointing.
