  • This museum has a great selection of a variety of artistic items. There are many events to enjoy and there is always a special exhibition. There is something for everyone to enjoy. It is one of the best places for family outings as well as to take kids along. Children love to have fun and learn.
  • The exhibits here are relatively interesting and for an $18 adult ticket, the opportunity to see different works seems worth it. Given the vertical nature of the architecture, circulating around the museum exhibits was a bit more choppy than most museum experiences. Some might say the spaces are the right size while others might think the spaces are a bit small. I liked the sky lounge which is open on the weekends and gives you access to some nice views. I will say the some of the exhibits might not fit everyone's taste but they were thought provoking nonetheless.
