Ansel Adams is the featured artist, but there is so many others: Cartier Bresson, Stieglietz, Stiechen, Dorothea Lange, Ruth Barnard, Imogen Cunningham, Horst, Maplethorpe, Roy Striker and many more. Nicely displayed in a peaceful setting. Not to be missed.

The enjoyment of this museum is based solely on the exhibits. They seem to rotate on a semi-regular basis so it depends on what you like. The outdoor space is very nice.

I suspect kids would not appreciate most or all of the museum exhibits. The park surrounding the museum has some nice large outdoor sculptures and people do picnic on the lawn at times, but this, too, is not much for kids.
