This museum offers general admission for free Thursdays from 4pm to 6pm. It has so many interesting art pieces and implements modern art as well. It's not designed for young children but they are still welcome and under 12 is always free. I love how they manage to stay fresh everytime I go and they switch up different interesting special exhibits for a small fee. If you're into art this is def a great place to visit. The building and courtyard are even beautiful!
Beautiful in and out Check out the new landscaping. Very romantic at night. Exhibitions sparkle. There is art for everyone and interactive projects for kids and adults. Best to get a membership. You feel as though you are coming home to family.
