Parking is paid hourly, a lot and adjoining structure were nearly full at noon. We began by having lunch in the cafe. We choose to sit outside on the patio, which faces a busy street, so traffic might be a bit noisy. There is a nice fountain between you and there, the view is interesting watching it all go past. We ordered wine, she had a Rose, I had an a Oregon Pinot Noir. Both were good. She ordered a chicken salad, and I got the Club Sandwich. The salad was really small and came with dark meat. Never have had that preparation in a salad before an the sacristy of the meat was very notable. Giving it an F, no flavor in dressing. My harshest review ever of a meal. I had a pretty good club with ham, turkey and bacon. French fries included. She ended up eating some of mine. The Museum itself is a wonderful experience. The collection covers many things, of course. Egyptian to Modern, Impersonation to Ancient, art, sculpture, Decco from the 30's, in several spaces around differing sections in the museum. The gift shop was a little short on postcards of the various pieces, but NO FLASH photography is allowed here, a saving grace. The staff we encountered were extremely helpful and we joined an already in progress Docent tour which was pretty amazing in the knowledge imparted to us. Spent four hours here and did not finish. A reason to return.
