An interesting afternoon. Rainy day inside a clean lovely museum with lovely art. Wish there was a bit larger selection of food choices but that's not why we were there. The staff was unobtrusive but ready to answer questions when asked.

It has a lot of nice exhibits and good art and sometimes the traveling exhibits are unbelievably great. A Hidden Gem I would recommend it. Check with the museum to see when children's activities take place.

A small but locally beloved art museum. Worth seeing several times a year. They offer a free family night every Thursday. Support the arts!

My family and I enjoyed this small but fantastic museum. They have a wonderful mix of old and new pieces while also displaying many different mediums. The structure itself is a work of art. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves expressive art.
