This is a small museum that only takes about 2 hours to see everything. When we visited around Christmastime, the special exhibit was on women artists who use glass as their medium. That was my favorite part! The regular exhibits focus mostly on American arts...More

There's underground parking at the building next door (Levine Centre for the Arts) I believe the entrance to the parking is on W. Stonewall St. It's $3.00 per half hour during the day, $5 after 5pm.
