This museum is amazing! The art work available is incredible. Definitely take advantage of having something like this so close. Artwork ranges from Picasso, to Matisse, to tons of new modern works. I would definitely recommend.

We were greatly impressed by the Classic artists as well as modernist impressionists. The museum was free (contributions accepted)--maybe because major renovations were taking place. The museum when completed should be one of the best in the South. In the meantime, make some time to...More
