    Great gift shop. Unfortunately they were switching exhibits while we were there, so not much was open for viewing.

    Great museum with rotating exhibits showing contemporary and avant garde art. If you enjoy art that is innovative, pushes the envelope, makes you think, or say "that's weird" this is the for you.
