If you like art museums this is a nice excursion for a half day. See a variety of art mediums in an ever-changing display. Classy with a little bit for everyone.

You will see some things that are pushing the envelop as far as art. Frankly, most of the things I see there are not my cup of tea but if you want to keep an open mind about art, it will be enjoyable.
