A striking, all white building on the water, this art museum was voted one of the best in southern Texas. Although permanent exhibits feature art from the region, the museum is known for its rotating exhibits of fine art work in different mediums.

We stopped here to get out of the rain and were surprised that it was a highlight of our trip. There are some amazing Chihuly glass pieces and several interesting pieces including a Cindy Sherman original upstairs! I highly recommend it!

You can spend a pleasant couple of hours viewing a good variety of nice artwork. Did not really hold the attention of our 8-year old, but the 13-year old really enjoyed it. Overall, not a huge building, but it is very nice visit!
