So, we met our daughter and grand children there late one afternoon maybe 90 minutes before closing. Parking was easy and to say the plaza is spectacular is an understatement. Wonderful lay out, views, art. My disappointment came with the cost of admission. Ten bucks....More

This museum has an incredible collection of toys and miniatures from around the world, donated by a major collector. There are also traveling exhibits. Located on Museum Hill, there are several other museums up there worth a visit!
