This museum has a "new section" and an "old section". Be sure to visit the "old section" which has a floor of "old masterpieces". The collection is small...but of high quality. Plus this house and museum is of historical importance.

this place is great and bigger than you think. I was amazed at the size and quality of the exhibits. Not just for kids, actually it is a very mature gallery. If in Sacramento check it out if you like museums
