When here on a trip to visit my niece and her family, it's not real big and small children will enjoy; her family liked it, as her four children were all under 10 years of age.

Its a really cool old mansion turned into a museum but not a whole lot to see. I personally like the Sante Fe Indian art. You can tour it 30 minutes or less regularly but the best time is during the lawn concerts or the...More

We visited the museum to see the dinosaurs exhibition. It was only $5 admission charge so it was fitting for what you got to see. The best part of the museum are the wonderful sculptures on display on the grounds. They photographed beautiful!

The Museum is so-so in my oppion. The real fun of this place is during the outside festivals and the Summer Lawn Concerts. The Lawn Concerts are free admission and you can bring your own chairs or blankets to hear the concerts. Bring your picnic...More

Lots of people do not know about this place. It's tucked in around old Midland, with trees and beautiful landscaping, it is a must stop. Let your children explore in the little town they have. Always have beautiful art on display.

A little art museum hidden away in suburban Midland, housed in what used to be the infamous Turner mansion. There's about 4 big rooms of paintings and sculptures and that's it. You could breeze through the entire collection in 30 - 45 mins., tops. If...More

We saw a dome movie at the planetarium about the return to the moon, and it was amazing. The kids had fun at the art museum, and the printmaking exhibit at the art museum was worth the visit. Great way to spend a Saturday in...More

I'm not seeing any special events outside or normal operating hours. It's the week after Spring Break in Midland, there is very little going between the end of Spring Break and April 1.
