The museum has a great collection: while not the British Museum (or even the MFA for that matter) it has the beat of what a smaller museum should have to offer. That is, a serendipitous collection that emerged through the power of the school and...More

One can immediately tell that this museum has been endowed by many people for many years. Their collection of impressionist, Chinese, modern, etc. etc. art surpasses all expectations. We would return in a heartbeat.
