The architecture of this place is very unique, and the art is an interesting mixture that would have something for every art lover. The admission and parking is free so there is no reason to miss this museum.

Amazing that general admission is free. We paid an additional fee for admission to the reconstructed Frank Lloyd Wright home on the grounds of the museum.

We go often and there is always something new and exciting. The museum is free but there is usually a featured exhibit that does cost. Call ahead or check their website to see what the featured exhibit is. At a fairly quick pace, you'll need...More

You do not have to purchase tickets in advance but it helps if there is a line. If I remember correctly, the price was 20 dollars and some change.

You do not need advance tickets. They are available daily. The indoor exhibit has already left, but his out door collection is still in place.
