This is an amazing museum; the architechture is absolutely spectacular. The visiting exhibit, "A Step in Time Across the Line: Recent Work by Chee Wang Ng" was utterly fascinating. There was a musical concert going on while we were there, and we were able to...More

Beautiful architecture (I.M.Pei), nice cafe/ gift shop, but it's the collections that really shine. Excellent selection of modern art on first floor... great teaching/learning resource.

Very impressive museum. You can find Monet, Picasso, Pollock. What I found a waste of space was the Chee Wang Ng exhibitions.

The design was done by I.M. Pei, who did the pyramid at the Louvre. Apparently, none of the corners are done at a direct right angle. Please note that this will soon be closed for a few years due to renovation and/or expansion.

Being a Brit. and excuse me if that sounds patronising, but I wasn't expecting much of this museum. What could there possibly be of much interest in a small town museum in the U.S that could not be seen at home ? I have to...More

The collection of ancient, medieval and modern art was impressive beyond description. There were some serious pieces here that I've only seen in textbooks. Some of the art was so famous and incredible that we were nearly moved to tears. We are museum fanatics and...More

First is the building itself. Designed by I.M. Pei, renowned Modernist Architect, It is very beautiful on a campus with many beautiful Gothic buildings already. The attraction is free, which is a huge plus. You normally can't find this level of quality for free anymore....More
