This museum is located in a beautiful and bright building. It has quite a nice permanent collection which include some masters (Cezanne, Van Gogh, Degas, Monet, and Picasso) as well as more modern work (Dan Flavin). The staircase wall drawings by Sol LeWitt is amazing....More

The gallery has new artist exhibits regularly, so it's quite nice to go. I particularly enjoy it when it's snowing and there isn't a lot of outdoor activity.

We had a 17 and 19 year old with us. They absolutely loved this museum. They enjoyed taking many pictures. The upstairs has great interactive exhibits. On a nice day it’s also great to take some really cool pictures right outside the museum.
