  • The museum has nice permanent exhibits with great “visiting” exhibits. A season pass pays for itself quickly after only a couple of visits.

  • I absolutely enjoyed this experience! It was so exciting looking at all the many different styles of art. Mind blowing to witness true ancient history. The stories and uniqueness of each artist were displayed in creative ways. I didn’t know where to look first, my eyes were overwhelmed with beauty. Definitely something worthy of experiencing. I will say I probably appreciate it more that I ever would have before now. With age comes wisdom! 😊 So they say… ♥️
  • 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.
