Breath taking, some what of a tardis the open floors are much larger than one may imagine. The exhibits mainly industrial and domestic are both original and fascinating. The gift shop is also worthwhile a visit.

This art gallery is in the Art Deco building. Art Deco seems to be something born out of the Bauhaus, but there was no mention of this anywhere. Anyway, that is an aside. For US$10 entry you get a lot of good stuff. 1930s murals,...More
