Very large collection of fine Asian Art. Everything from Mastodon Ivory carvings to ceramic and jade pieces. Beautiful embroidery robes and panels. Around every corner was another magnificent piece; Can't imagine that such a large collection is private.

Definitely worth the time and money. Many beautiful Asian and Judaic artifacts and a moving display commemorating the Holocaust.

So many items on display that you will never see anywhere else. The signage is informative and I always learn something new each time I go.

A wonderful collection of Judea and Asain Art. The pieces were amazing on both sides. Located remotely awkwardly but never the less very well displayed. The gift shop was very nice as well. Had a holocaust display as well.

The Asian collection is large in size and scope. Very accessible and easy to navigate. We were amazed by the virtuosity and complexity of the artistry and it is a don't miss experience. Judiac art was also massive in size - but we were not...More
