  • Love this place! There is always something cultural and engaging going on. It's a wonderful place to spend time surrounded by great works of art. The cafeteria offers a great selection of food options and a well maintained salad bar. The only down side of that the food can be a bit pricey. That being said, if you love art and feel strongly about supporting the institutions dedicated to preserving that art, get a membership.!
  • This museum is massive! Me and my husband spent an entire day wandering around this place. They have a lot of Egyptian art works as well as some very famous artworks but current artists. We we're both impressed but the cast amount of art.
