This is a nice museum. Hey, we're in Michigan... so you're nuts if you expect MOMA or the Chicago Institute or one of the great temples to art... but it's very nice. The art is exhibited well. There is a nice shop and cafe. You're right at Rosa Parks Circle, so there's lots of food and drink outside as well.... More
