Cool museum, it's just a lot smaller than I expected and only hosts rotating exhibits. Don't expect to spend more than 30 minutes here. It's good to pop in if you are in the neighborhood, but not worth a trip to see just the museum. On the positive side, is free to visit.
In its latest version this is a teeny-tiny space that always has a lovely small exhibit of some folk artist or craft type. I think the larger version lost its funding. It expands and contracts over the years but I have seen wonderful artists there that I would never otherwise have been exposed to. Nice little gift shop also
