Something for everyone! It was a most impressive display. I especially enjoyed the Wyeth exhibit. The disjointed structure of the museum was the only disadvantage we found. It was difficult getting from one area to the next

The Art Museum has been fortunate to have had some generous and discerning donors. The impressionist art is especially good.

It's a little hard to navigate, and a bit on the expensive side ($20 for an adult), but has an impressive collection on European and Native American Art, and the temporary Laika Exhibition is stellar.

I went there for the Andrew Wyeth exhibit and found it beautifully presented. The museum itself is a maze of floors and half stories in two different buildings connected by and underground tunnel. Even with the map, I found it very confusing.

I didn't have high expectations for this museum. I just went for something to do, and I was surprised by how much it has to offer. Lovely landscape paintings, ancient artifacts from around the world, weird and sometimes beautiful modern art, and more. I especially...More
