The exhibits here are world class. The staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The museum has an interesting permanent collection as well as ever changing new exhibits.

Each time I visit, I am struck by the quality of the special exhibits. Today was no exception. The Winslow Homer was outstanding. The African American photographs of Bullard were great. A lot to see.
