This facility is s treasure. Great art in an easy-to-get to location. Changing exhibits make repeat visits worthwhile—and you sometimes get the opposite to see artists in action. Rain, snow or sunshine—any time is a great time to visit!

The Chazen museum is a hidden gem. Every time I've been here I wish I had more time to spend. You can definitely get lost in here for a few hours. Amazing history and fabulous exhibits. Worth a visit for sure!
