WE loved it and we will come again every time we are here. It is so rich of awesome different iras and type of history that probably needs a couple of days to cover.

Beautifully displayed art work by some of the art world’s greatest. Works by Van Gogh, Monet, Grant Wood, Winslow Homer, John Singer Sargent and Thomas Hart Benton just to name a few. No entry fee and well worth the time.
