We appreciate the local artists and their wonderful landscapes of the surrounding area, but felt it was just an average art museum. It is a beautiful building in a location just two blocks from downtown. Just wish they had curated a bit more art into...More

Great collection of art worth stopping by to see. Featured artists displaying their art. The entrance fee is $5.00. There is also a discovery area that I didn't have time to see but I bet it's fun for the kids!

It was great to see lithographs by Picasso & Matisse in their European Masters room. Lots of regional and nationally-known artists, and their major exhibit space is enormous! Great curator. Nice lobby and shop.

A very nice place to just relax and look at all of the art. They even have a section for children to keep them busy and try making something fun.

I would highly recommend the "Nic". We're members, and attend opening receptions, and enjoy the art. In the summertime, there are free folk-type concerts behind the museum on Wednesday nights at 5:30 p.m. (bring your chair or blanket). It's not a large museum, but there...More

The "NIC" is always good value. Almost always free and displays are refreshed in a timely manner. A nice attraction for downtown activities.
