Wonderful building, quiet, bright and airy. Exhibits are well presented and curated. While few of the exhibits are spectacular, there are some interesting pieces, particularly the furniture. Current exhibition of etchings by Whistler and contemporaries is delightful

There are some lovely features of this museum and offers some lovely exhibitions. The intimacy of the small concerts they have is as sweet as the quality of the music. It's a great way to spend some time.

The visit happened to be free on the day we visited courtesy of Meijer, which was a pleasant surprise. The main feature was the "Where the Wild Things Are" artwork from the author of the children's book. It was very cool to see in person...More
