  • Extensive collection with lots to offer. Every period of human history is well covered. Expansive but slightly confusing layout.

  • Worked in this wonderful museum couple years back. Used Metro from Club Quarters hotel to museum & only had few hours but overwhelmed by the diversity of art. Want to go back sometime

  • MC Escher exhibit is great! They have the prints but also many of the wood cuts and blocks on display.right next to them. Very interesting, I've never seen an exhibit like that. This was also my first time in the Kinder building, very impressive and fun space. More contemporary works, great flow to the museum. Fun tunnel back to the Beck building.
  • Twas a beautiful museum! Many cultural arts were exhibited from all over the world! Definitely a great experience to see what cultures each country shared. I got to go there on Thursday night so I got a free entrance! I love that they do those give back to the community! A must go there especially if you like arts! Cheers 🥂
