This private collection of paintings and sculptures depicts the grit and the glory of work. From fields to pharmacy, blacksmiths to buildings, we see the sweat, brawn and brains of workers who have shaped our world. The quiet setting, four floors including a rooftop garden...More

My parents, girlfriend, and I visited here for a low-price museum to see something different. I especially figured my dad, himself a skilled tradesman and business owner, would appreciate the Steel - Cycle of Industry exhibit. Getting here is fairly easy, and we were able...More

This place is absolutely amazing, but I was really disappointed by the severe underrepresentation of people of color in the artwork. I found 4-5 pieces featuring people of color among the hundreds on display.

Great art works of the industrial age with a distinctly Teutonic slant. Most of the works shown are the artistry of Europeans, with a large number of German. Plan on taking 1 to 3 hours to take in all of the exhibits

I'm not a big museum fan. Lots of obscure pictures with any consistent theme. This museum is not like that. Focused on work and what people do with pictures of so many jobs--from ironworker to beekeeper. Sculptures and paintings (mainly paintings). 3 50-something guys had...More
