Not a large museum but they have an interesting permanent collection and we saw a very nice special exhibit there. Worth the trip and the time to visit.

For $14 each admission, we expected a museum experience, not just one exhibit. The Dolci was pretty great, more so because we've been to Florence, Italy experienced similar pieces. It took all of an hour.

Rotating exhibits and around 4-5 exhibits at one time. Lots of local artists and good descriptions of everything. Not free if not a Duke student. Recommend spending 1-2 hours there. There are also some sketching classes and a delicious cafe.

We visited on a rainy day in May. The museum is noted as being small, but the 3 exhibits we saw where well worth the $5 admission fee. I really liked the European and Meso-american displays. Overall we spent 2 hours there. I'm sure we...More
