The circular Frank Lloyd Wright-designed building is as much of a draw as the museum's collection of modern art.

The entire time we were strolling around the building, I was looking for hidden cameras; surely someone was laughing at us for looking at this collection of junk. Very disappointing and definitely NOT worth the admission price.

This place reminds me that architecture is a work of art. The museum is just fabulous! Was there over Christmas and it was good. The audio guide works as GPS/ map and so when you are anywhere in the museum looking at a piece of...More

Incredible building and that was the best part. The lines and the contrast photograph well and it’s mind boggling to think that the architect could visualize such a beautiful building. The staff were welcoming and helpful. The collection is small but they had some of...More

The collection shown on the ramp when we were there, was very boring, (Danh Vo) but the permanent collection is wonderful. Picasso, Degas, Gauguin... and more greats. Spend most of your time in that room. Two cautions: It's expensive. $25 to enter. If you bring...More

The museum is very nice and convenient however we did not like the exhibition and most of the elements there. Probably it’s down to personal taste.
