I so wanted this to be an amazing walk through a gallery that amazed. I wasn't amazed. The gallery has many antiquities and interesting silver collections. We were enjoying the walk thru until a guided tour came alongside us. Loud and inconsiderate are the words...More

We are members and try to attend each exhibit. Always fun to look at permanent collection as well. The current exhibit has photos taken in the thirties and more recent photos by Native American photographers. Really challenges the stereotypes that have become so prevalent.

For a city this size, it is a wonderful art museum. I took the tour of the Native American exhibit of Edward Curtis and others. So interesting. This museum has so much great art to view. I really enjoyed my time there!

Enjoyed the Basquiat, Haring and Kahler cat painting. Some gems in the collection (like the Egon Schiele), and the displays on Native art was great.
