We arrived here late afternoon on a Thursday and spent several hours admiring canvas prints, blown glass and unusual pieces of artwork. The admission was free as well as free parking. Would return if we came back to this area.

We enjoyed a visit to the art museum which was small but interesting. Having an infant with us we appreciated the smaller size of the museum.
