African, Egyptian, European and more. Paintings, sculpture, jewelry, and many other cultural artifacts. Docents are very helpful and will set up guided tours for groups. Rotating exhibits keep it fresh.

This art museum was beautiful and worth a visit. There was a great variety of art. The cool thing is it's free! If you love art you must visit this museum. You can take photographs as long as you don't use a flash.
