We stopped by to view the current temporary show, the Three friends. A combination of modern painting, sculpture and multimedia creations, this is a delightful exhibit. We were particularly attracted to Jack Stuppin's work: it is so happy and easy to like. However, the works...More

What a terrific and unexpected surprise this treasure of a museum was to us! It's actually two museums in one. One half is an art museum, the other half a history museum. Of course, your enjoyment of any museum depends on how much you like...More

Small but eclectic art museum very near the downtown mall. I saw two unusual exhibits at my last visit in Sept. One was a private collection of photographs of female nudes, and the other featured furniture and fine art made of exotic woods. A pleasure.

We go to the museum fairly regularly and are considering becoming members. It's a small museum, but they change out the exhibits frequently enough to make it worth it to go a few times a year.

Interesting art pieces but not enough to really want me to stay. I was much more interested in the architecture of the building. The gardens were nice around the museum
