This smaller museum is a gem containing many high quality works for it's size. Legacies from passionate and local citizens well-connected to major American artists collected from over 100 years make this a superpower for its size. It is also a comfortable place to hang...More

This smaller museum has one of the countries finest Pre-Raphaelites painting collections: breathtaking. Add the countries finest illustrators , a fine contemporary collection, regular shows and a good café. Hard to beat. Discounts for seniors and students. Free on sight parking, A must see attraction.

This art museum does a great job of both blending in (it's situated in an amazingly beautiful residential neighborhood) and standing out (largest collection of pre-raphaelite art outside of europe, as well as revolving, thoughtful exhibits). There's also a lovely outside sculpture garden. Lot's of...More
