Only a small fraction of their permanent collection is on display, but they manage to keep it interesting and put on timely exhibitions. Admission is free until renovation is finished.

The museum is under construction so there isn't much to see. The only good thing is it's free. Parking is a challenge.

The accoustaguide availability makes a big difference. Really nice job with that. Now a relatively small local museum being re-built to be large local museum. I can't wait. But free until re-built.

Parking isn't too much of a problem even during construction, but there was insufficient signage directing people across the main drag to the parking lot. Parking on street was fine. It's a fun collection to peruse and breaks up all the painting with some nice...More
