A must-see visit museum with a simply fantastic permanent collection of folk art that inspires, educates, and perhaps overwhelms in its scope. Two special exhibits on Chinese quilting and Tramp art were equally compelling. This is a true world class museum. If I lived in...More

It had some interesting exhibits but the bulk of the displays are scenes of small figurines in streets and towns. The scenes are done well but there are about 250 different scenes of these dolls. Seems like there may be more to folk art than...More
