Definitely visit here if you have a chance. This is a stupendous and fascinating museum of fine arts. I love the American collection, especially John Singer Sargent. Great for Families, friends or single visit and reflecting.

We went specifically to check this exhibit out but also took the rest of the museum in. Many great examples of ancient civilizations. Egypt, Europe and the Americas are well represted. I especially appreciated the native american pottery and clothing.

The museum is impressive. A wide variety of art from many regions and time periods. Visiting with 5 year olds was a bit of a challenge but the museum has some fun things for the kids to search out.
