A great place for those with children with frequent activities and a fun archeologic area. The visiting exhibits are always worth the trip for adults too.

What a pleasant surprise! We are from Pittsburgh, so the Warhols did not impress us. (This, so called artist doesn’t impress me in Pittsburgh either). But overall art collection was impressive. My favorite was The Kiss sculpture by Auguste Rodin.

The light touch of this superb museum, located on a bluff over Greenwich was so nuanced. The exhibits we're well lit and spaced, the staff friendly and knowledgeable. A wonderful afternoon for the mind and senses.
