    Incredible museum. Huge and beautiful.
  • Bram T.
    Stellar collections; the museum’s location is breath-taking with panoramic views of the city. The tram, courtyard and architecture feel like an experience straight out of a bond film.

    Everything. The museum is an architectural masterpiece, with many “hidden” but obvious design elements that both surprise and challenge your sense of sight.

    Entry to museum is free but $15 to park. You have to wait to catch a trolly to get to the museum or walk about .5 Miles up hill. Not a bad walk but would be cautious if you have strollers or elders

    If you are an art nut, definitely go here. Great art from many periods in history.

    The museum's official Sketching Gallery encourages guests to literally draw inspiration from traditional art pieces. Guests can work with an easel or at a shared table, and it's complimentary.

    World class. Make sure you arrive early enough that you're not rushed. Plenty of sunset opportunities for pictures too.

    Extremely beautiful center, free for the public but parking costs $15. Bring a camera and food because what they sell is a bit overpriced and only mediocre!

    Beautiful views and the museum has a great collection. The lawn by the Garden is great for sitting down and having a picnic, or a short break. Can't wait to go back

    Free audio guide, amazing construction and gardens. Free umbrellas to protect you from sun shine. The line for the tram is slow, so consider to walk up (around 15 minutes, take the umbrella).
