  • Lots of beautiful and inspiring art pieces here, and the views of the harbor from inside and the outside steps are just breathtaking! They also have spaces for people to make their own art. The building itself is a work of art and an architectural eye candy. The gift shop was nice but very $$$$. They have another art space across the harbor called 'Watershed', which you can visit for free. To get there, go to the pier just steps from this art gallery, take a 20-minute ferry ride, and then walk 10 minutes once you're on the other side. Allot an extra 1.5 hours if you plan to go there. The ferry ride is included in their admission fee, so be sure to buy admission tickets before boarding.
  • Located in seaport area. Great collection of paintings and art. Excellent souvenir store. Love music. Breath taking view of the ocean. Exhibits change and therefore a great place to visit often. Free on Wednesdays
