My brother loved it. He is a fan of abstract, modern and contemporary art. I would have appreciated a bit more signage explaining pieces (some only had tags stating the artist and medium).

First, there are only a very few Masters works. The gift shop has interest offerings. End of positives. True, I am not a fan of "Modern Art". This museum has lots of it. A huge pile of junk metal pieces (pots, pans and such) with...More
