A lovely museum. Open, spacious. Friendly staff. Lots of variety ... Frank Lloyd Wright, Grant Davis, western art, Spanish art, Picasso, ceramics, metal, etc. Something for everyone. Very nice opportunities for children to participate in creating art. Ample parking. Free museum. Go!

It's a very unique art museum. There are many opportunities for people to create their own art inspired by the art in the museum. Some parts may be boring for kids, but creating personal art using various elements is very appealing!

It really depends on what you want to see....I would say it takes at least 2 hours to see it all and enjoy the view of the Mississippi river.....
