This museum surprised me with the depth of its exhibit on artists and angels. Impressively curated, very sophisticated the exhibit covered everyone from Andy Warhol to artists working in the resistance in wwII. It also included poetry which is always a delight. Very inspiring.

If you like pottery/cermaics, this location is very nice. Wide variety from ancient times to mid 1800's. Location of Museum is nice with park like setting for the grounds. You do get admission to the uptown Museum which is a 15 minute ride away.
