The sculpture park alone is worth the price of admission with it's impressive art. But, inside is just as impressive with multiple galleries.

Four hours is more than enough. If weather permits, taking a guided trip of the Sculpture Park is great. I think 90 mins. for the inside exhibits is my personal limit. And it is worth taking some time in the gift shop.
