A great way to spend a rainy day. The exhibits are current and interesting. I highly recommend signing up for a tour to delve even further into the meaning behind the artworks! The building itself is a marvel to behold.

It's a beautiful building on the outside but the entrance leads you into a vast, dismal, usually empty room, sort of like a railway station without the passengers. The person who takes your money is friendly enough, as are the staff in the gift shop--about...More
