This I.M. Pei-designed museum has an impressive collection, including Giacometti's Walking Man II. The Mallin Sculpture Court on the second floor (don't forget to look up at the ceiling for Leo Villareal's Cosmos) also offers incredible views. Unfortunately, we found the art difficult to fully...More

From the minute we entered the museum we felt welcomed. The site is not to be missed. Terrific view from the top floor.

We even entertained young children here. Beautiful views from the 5th floor over the town and lake. Cool seating area with light show and acoustics on floor 2. All the paintings and sculptures you could wish for.

While some may say the architecture resembles a toilet the fat is on a clear day the views are anything but stinky. Loo up the lake, see most of the campus or just take in the art.

Visted here to view a temporary exhibit given by an architecture student who is a son of a friend of ours. His exhibit (which is closed now) and the museum itself is very impressive. Beautiful IM Pei architecture, great view, very worthwhile permanent exhibits.

An outstanding assortment of art - including Sumerian and Babylonian tablets as well as Warhol prints. Very eclectic collection - not a lot from any one period but something of interest to every art taste. Good for at least an hour or two. It is...More

Would be best if you could visit by public transit or walking as parking limited and expensive for short duration. And this was early in the morning on a slow day in summer. Unfortunately the greeter also suggested 45 minutes would be sufficient for a...More
