Great museum that isn't overly crowded with art from many different time periods. It has some of the great masters and local art. The dinosaur exhibit at the natural history museum was amazing too.

Parking is paid hourly, a lot and adjoining structure were nearly full at noon. We began by having lunch in the cafe. We choose to sit outside on the patio, which faces a busy street, so traffic might be a bit noisy. There is a...More
