It's not a big museum (it will probably take one or two hours at most to see the whole museum), but their collections are pretty amazing for a museum of their size. Their permanent collection has a pretty impressive amount of Renaissance and medieval art....More

There were several special exhibits which were sort of interesting but frankly the portions of their permanent collection that were on view were more enjoyable. The senior rate for admission is $6.50.

Part of museum was closed for renovation, so felt like I got less than what I paid for. There was one exhibit of famous people who died early in life. A book was available that told you interesting facts about each.
