Loved it. We spent a couple hours there after riding through the park with its beautiful large trees. It is not a large museum, yet it is very well done.

This museum is not large and can easily be visited in half a day. It has a nice café and friendly staff. The art work is nice and a few pieces are rather significant. Overall it is worth the time to see.
