They have a very nice collection of art, and on special times some very interesting place settings. I am sure there is something for all to enjoy.

Beside the contemporary art galeries at the first floor you will be impressed by the 17 rooms in the house plus the amazing craftmanship along with the pieces of last century art spread all over the house

This place has beautiful woodwork and windows, just walking around in this place is stunning. They have changing art displays in the basement gallery and up in the mansion there are permenant displays. The cost is by donations but so worth a few bucks.
