A super hidden gem! We take our kindergarten class here every year on a guided tour and they learn so much. The museum is great- one day i'll make it back to learn more without my class in tow.

The artistic creations were amazing ly beautiful and breathtaking. The memorial tributes to the victims of 911, Police, Fire, Military, Rescure Personnel and Civilian Respondents was very humbling.

Enjoyed the size and content of museum. Great surprises around every corner. The Chihuly was great to see. The opening introduction video was worth starting with.

The museum also includes an interesting sample of religious history, don't miss it;... More

This was a neat museum but not very kid friendly. There are a lot of glass objects. I did enjoy the tid bits of information in the Be A Hero section.

A very interesting mix of art and tribute to the heroes of our time. It is a nice complement to the other sites in the area. The addition of the artwork elevates the exhibit in a unique way. A donation is requested for the visit

The national museum inside offered something to see but it's more interesting on the outside of it. The walking tour surrounding the area is nice!
