This place is phenomenal! Just looking at it from the outside is wonderful but the inside is great as well. There was also a Chihuly piece on display while we were there. Beautiful views of the lake and surrounding areas from the museum as well.

This was a real highlight of our visit! The museum itself is really incredible and is worth seeing just because of its architecture. We also really enjoyed their collection -especially their modern art exhibit.

Definitely outside. Try to find a position on the bridge that's back far enough to see the full spectacle.

I suggest outside. There are many vantage points. Across the street in the parking garage. At the restaurant nearby (Harbor House).
