First of all, your personal preference for "modern art" will highly influence your opinion of a visit to this uptown jewel. My idea of artistic expression encompasses pieces that look as if they were NOT made in a 2nd grade arts and crafts class. The...More

This is an awesome collection of Modern Art. The Angels exhibit was spectacular, featuring many well know and lesser known artists. The museums sculptures are breathtaking.

Enjoyed the displays; religious themed. Some works from the masters, Picasso and Dali plus local artist as well. 4 floors and not overwhelming.

I enjoyed this small museum. It has a very diverse collection. It is also centrally located and close to other downtown activities and restaurants.
