This museum was very much to my liking. I did not particularly care for their selection of modern art, however I enjoyed the Medieval and Renaissance collection and the Exotic collection (by which I mean Asian art and Southern American art).

We wondering through the art museum after a nice lunch. Museum asks for a $5 donation which is very reasonable. Small and manageable to walk through. Has elevators, air conditioning and variety of works of art.

The exhibit is small and it is free. So it should be an easy decision. You can't go wrong. I recommend it, unless you are pressed for time or have other more important business to attend. It is a lovely place to take a break...More

Since there is no parking on campus, I generally park on or near Nassau Street and walk to the museum.
