Great art collection. Wonderful architecture. And the views are breathtaking. The tram between the parking and the museum is so cool. In the end, you just pay for parking. $15 before 3pm and $10 after. Totally recommend it!

Exhibits are somewhat focused as they tend to have more of the complementary artists rather than iconic exhibits of just the primary artists in a style. They give a good introduction to some lesser known styles. Reasonable balance of popular and more obscure exhibits.
