The quality of the exhibits was exceptional. While the collections were not large the quality was unsurpassed. I particularly liked the large Chinese paintings on display.

Nice museum in West Palm Beach. 50 minute tour was very good. $12 admission. Parking a problem so had to go across street. Free, however. Quite a variety of art on display.

I've been to a lot of museums to appease my wife. Usually I can find something of interest. This one was a little difficult. Other than a photo exhibit, I found nothing of interest. I would skip this museum unless you are truly into art.

Loved the space, lots of money and thought went into the building and grounds. We had hoped to see the iconic toy exhibit, but it had just left.

Thank you for caring for your community. My family has taken advantage of your residents' special on saturdays multiple times. Being walking distance, it's so refreshing to spend an hour relaxing in your lovely space. Cannot wait for your renovations to be complete!

Met a small group for a private tour, with comments from a local artist who's class we attend. The displays are wonderful.

A very nice collection for a small city. Diversity of subject matter and changing exhibits make it worth the visit.
