They have an excellent permanent collection and well as an interesting rotating collection. The property itself is huge and they have a little cafe inside if you get hungry or thirsty while touring the property! Well worth the drive!

It makes you think about art in new ways. I want to go back to see the African art which is part of the permanent collection. Museum is free though there is a fee for special exhibits. The staff is extremely helpful.
