  • Went on a late Tuesday morning, it was empty 😁. We got spend a good amount of time absorbing the work. So much art to take in, I could've spent all day in each room. The building itself is exquisite and gorgeous. The top floor is my favorite, if you see nothing else, go to the top floor. Overall, I have a wonderful experience.
  • I was pleasantly surprised at how amazing this museum was! Not only was it HUGE with three giant floors, but the many exhibits were varied and expansive. There were artifacts from all around the world and tons of paintings in different styles from a variety of artists. They even had a “Louisiana” room which was so cool to see!
