  • The people working there are actually passionate about the art they are showcasing. Often they would come over to offer background information on many pieces and also answer any questions you may have had. Please make sure y’all remember, MASKS ARE STILL MANDATORY which is kinda wild considering no one else anywhere requires it but it is what it is. Parking is hard to find so there is that. Besides that, even if you don’t like art at all, it’s a cool place to kill a couple hours
  • Beautiful, beautiful museum! I’ve visited every time I’ve come to the island, and it never disappoints! The current ticket price to visit all parts of the museum is $13 and $8 for the main exhibits. Like everywhere else, you currently have to show your vaccination card and ID to enter, and you have to wear a mask. There are several beautiful new pieces, and about 4 floors to view in this museum. It’s in a good location, so there are many nearby restaurants. Most of the staff were kind; others could work on though customer service. Still a great museum, I can’t wait to return!
