  • Waste of time and money (esp. latter). Not a museum but at best a gallery, no permanent exhibit, "Seven Vices" exhibit takes less space than my living room, "art" includes various skateboards...

  • A small two story museum that has carefully curated collections. The "Making Your Mark" exhibition is a great educational experience that put together different techniques used in modern painting practices. Very informative and easy to understand for general public. The hands-on area provides simple tools and essential materials so that visitors could put their thoughts into a quick scratch. There was a workshop session going on but didn't have a chance to signup for a short stay in town.
  • Small, but intriguing art museum. Talented works of art, I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Friendly staff, they offer military, student, and even EBT discounts!!! Regular admission is $7. Super clean, relaxing and nice!
  • Small but very reasonably priced art museum. Exhibits were beautiful wish they had a bit more of a gift selection.
  • August 20, 2022-Attended Van Dyke Brown print class with Cathie McCormick teaching. Wonderful process and learned some Photography History too! Very fun workshop! Please do more classes like this!!
  • Very small but entertaining museum. The entrance fees are very low, especially when you're a student. The majority of the artworks displayed are part of the temporary exhibit, which was interesting when I went there in March 2017. There are also some workshops for children in order to promote culture, which is a very nice initiative. No restaurant or cafeteria if I remember correctly.
