If you are there when the museum opens (10 am), or at noon, or at closing (5 pm) you will see the "wings" open and close, accompanied by music. This museum will delight lovers of great architecture.

Inspirations are everywhere. Started with beautiful building near lake Michigan. Love glass collection. It's amazing to see close paintings of great masters. I like room with Georgia O'Keefe paintings!

My sister and I (adults) parked under the museum and rented headphone sets for information. This was a smart move as we learned so much at each exhibit from listening to background information. This museum is spectacular! If you want to see the "wings" open...More
