This is very special museum, a great mix of local and world wide art. We especially like how they added on the front of the old building. It fits well and is elegant as well as setting you up for a high quality art experience. The two sculpture gardens are especially nice. One is more natural and contemplative while the other is a wonderful gathering space for events We love the use of color on the walls for showing off the art to its best advantage
