Very brief walk through the museum this afternoon. The quality of the minerals on display was terribly impressive. At or above the quality of much larger museums. The tool themed art was not my favorite.

What a lovely museum. The size is perfect for those with little ones. We saw the National Geographic Animal Portrait instillation. It was beautiful. The gift shop is delightful and the museum staff was top notch.

Living in Southern Westchester for 30+ years, it is surprising I hadn't made the trip to the Bruce Museum. I am definitely glad I did! The current exhibition (I believe) features superb quality US propaganda posters from WWI and a rare glimpse into Soviet artifacts...More

I have visited here many times and it always has some great exhibitions. Toulouse Lautrec was fabulous and the mineral collection is a stand out. Robotics and the Space sow wer among my favorites, but there is always something of interest.

Minerals and rocks were a good sampling of nature's finest. Unfortunately the specimens were difficult in some areas to understand which name plaque went with what. Nice gift shop.
