  • This is a fantastic museum! I ended up there for several hours in the morning and then went back to see the rest after lunch! The American Art had a wonderful selection including some by Georgia O'Keeffe that I had never seen -special for me coming from New Mexico. The European Art is incredible with something by all the greats! The paintings from the 1300's to 1700's were exquisite. The light in paintings of Venice from the 1700's was marvelous. The art of East Asia with the ancient Buddhas was powerful. I can't say enough about how wonderful this museum was!
