  • Every time I go here it's a new perspective
  • Great museum with good friendly staff. There is an amazing collection of art here. If you enjoy art it is a must see. My personal favorite is the Diego Rivera mural, love his work and it is incredible look at. Could spend an hour just in that room. Have fun and enjoy!
