This is a wonderful museum. The museum is free except if they have a special traveling exhibit. I was so pleasantly surprised at their permanent (and traveling) exhibits. The museum is beautiful architecturally and the outside grounds are lovely.

This is a wonderful museum for all ages. Admission is free unless you wish to visit the visiting international exhibit. A great gift shop -- wonderful books for children. Two delicious restaurants options. Open every day, all year.
