It was a little confusing to navigate the upper floors of the museum, but we managed. Loved the Pittsburgh glass exhibit(as I am from Pittsburgh) and the tiffany glass exhibit as well. And free admission on Wednesdays was a pleasant surprise

We stopped by to check out Ancient Ink, but we ended up visiting all of the galleries, and we really enjoyed the art selection and curation.

We have artists in our family that can appreciate the art posted in this museum. And we enjoyed the extent of the talent offered with each piece.

Surprisingly big collection. Pieces for purchase. Works by "famous"artists, local artists. Different mediums. Inexpensive. Easy parking.

This is a small museum by big city standards, but has some very nice art. It is interesting architecturally with an old Greek structure linked to a very modern wing. I'm really not into the ancient Asian art section, but am a big fan of...More

I bit of a lot of things. They are a lovely small art museum. They were having a special exhibit of the work of a couple of more local artists (one a photographer, the other a painter) last summer when I was there.
