This is definitely a must see museum. There's not a lot to see in each room but each work of art leaves you wondering what's in the next room.

Absolutely amazing artwork is displayed in this museum and the museum itself was intriguing. The magnitude of some of the pieces is just stunning. The area is close to downtown and surrounded by artwork outside the kids can play on. Great for any beautiful day.
