  • Love that there is a new wing & old wing & a house from the 1800's with beautiful wallpaper & carpet. It's not too big of a museum so you can see everything without feeling overwhelmed
  • This may seem like a small museum but when I went, they were displaying an incredible collection of works on paper. The quick and free docent tour was especially helpful.
  • Simply gorgeous.
  • Be sure to check out the Hopper painting on the second floor!
  • First time seeing John Haberle's trompe l'oeil paintings and well color me impressed. Overall a great museum.
