Although this museum has a decent sized permanent collection, only part of it is on display at any one time. Frequent rotations and specialty exhibits keep things fresh for frequent visitors.

Only a small fraction of their permanent collection is on display, but they manage to keep it interesting and put on timely exhibitions. Admission is free until renovation is finished.

I enjoyed walk around. Due to expansion, there are only three of four rooms open, however, the collection is nice.

The museum is under construction so there isn't much to see. The only good thing is it's free. Parking is a challenge.

We came to the museum from Boynton Beach, it's a little bit of a drive but well worth it. The museum is small but with some very impressive paintings and we enjoyed very much the Chinese artifacts collection. We didn't pay attention to the opening...More
