We went for a photo event but loved the entire museum ...... it makes for an enjoyable afternoon! Pair it with a lunch at a favorite local haunt and you'll have a great day.

For a city of this size MWPAI is impressive. They offer wonderful art displays and exhibits that rival New York City and Paris museums. In addition they have frequent concerts in the court and weekly outstanding movies with discounts for members.

The Munson provides excellent exhibits as well as outstanding live performances and classic movies. Well worth the small admission cost.
