I have been coming to this Museum for years since it opened. I strongly recommend visiting if your in the area and you enjoy art. A wonderful outdoor sculpture garden. They have outdoor concerts at times. They have current exhibitions and some core art holdings.

On a hot summer's day, what could be nicer than a jaunt to nice, clean, air-conditioned art museum? The exhibitions were very interesting and engaging and on Sundays it's free! Definitely worth a cute weekend date trip.
