  • You can really slow down here take it in. Beautiful art. Much needed historical truths. Very peaceful place and it's free. Exhibits change frequently. Parking is $12 but if you take the train it drops you off very close. Take a stroll is the rose gardens before or after make it a wonderful day.
  • This place was welcoming beautiful and full of amazing art I went for the Queens Festival and stayed for the free museum day. I'd definitely go again. there's so much to see and learn about
