This museum is a great place for history lovers and art lovers. There is so much beautiful art and I love reading the captions and history of each piece that tells a little bit more about it.

Happened to be in town for another reason and invited by a local. Enjoyed it and another exhibit that just happened to be there. While it was clean, there was nothing extraordinary about the place.

Beautiful small museum on Red River in Alexandria. Numerous shows of local and not so local artists are held throughout the year. They have beautiful permanent exhibition, too. It is a local delight, well kept secret. Must see for anybody visiting Alexandria
