I've been here multiple times with friends, by myself, with my boyfriend. It has an amazing permanent exhibit that I've seen tons of times but the traveling exhibits are always amazing and innovative. I highly recommend anyone to go to this art museum.

The current special exhibition, A Feast for the Eyes: 200 Years of American Still-Life Painting from the Hevrdejs Collection is well-done and interesting. We didn't have time to see much of the permanent collection. The grounds are nice and there's a coffee shop cafe.
