Firstly I have to admit that the reason I won’t give 5 stars to this museum was the $15 fee, even though I enjoyed viewing the various exhibitions I felt that it was definitely overpriced. Fairly small museum with gallery spaces on 4 levels, we...More

My husband and I enjoyed three exhibits at our recent visit to the Museum of Arts and Design: La Frontera—Encounters Along the Border. What a moving display.

This is not a conventional art gallery or museum, so I suppose it won't be for everyone -- but art doesn't have to be famous or conventional to be interesting and/or beautiful. Unfortunately this is a small museum; I wish I could have seen more....More

Compared with some of the larger galleries like MOMA and the Met, the collections ar rather small and don’t take long to tour. I thought more forms of crafts would be represented but clearly this is a newer gallery
