What a terrific and unexpected surprise this treasure of a museum was to us! It's actually two museums in one. One half is an art museum, the other half a history museum. Of course, your enjoyment of any museum depends on how much you like...More

Small but eclectic art museum very near the downtown mall. I saw two unusual exhibits at my last visit in Sept. One was a private collection of photographs of female nudes, and the other featured furniture and fine art made of exotic woods. A pleasure.

We go to the museum fairly regularly and are considering becoming members. It's a small museum, but they change out the exhibits frequently enough to make it worth it to go a few times a year.

Interesting art pieces but not enough to really want me to stay. I was much more interested in the architecture of the building. The gardens were nice around the museum

The museum is in two sections, one for art and the other for history. When we were there, the exhibits in each were very worthwhile. A Robert Williams show in the art museum and an excellent photography exhibit in the history museum.
