    The Richard Avedon exhibit displays his formidable output over the decades. If you're looking for someone to praise for how good she ended up looking after all that fuss, Avedon deserves some credit. Read more

    Your ticket is valid for 10 days so if you are experiencing overload you can come back another day. A fantastic idea that more museums should employ

    If you are looking for the most air conditioned place that is normally the most deserted, the Egyptian exhibit is for you.

    Parking in the garage is $24 if you are there 2 1/2 hours. Just a warning!

    Checking out Chihuly for another time. Definitely worth it, but try to avoid the crowds by coming during the week.

    There are several Monet collection on the second level. And a very interesting work by Picasso on the first level. And don't miss Pollock's work at the third.

    The Michelangelo exhibit is small but fascinating and a reminder that genius means hard work.

    In the Art of the Americas wing, don't miss the "Behind the Scenes" galleries, which have a very meta focus ("How does the museum decide what to display?"). They're almost hidden and, as such, empty.

    Mike D · February 28, 2013
  • Michael E.

    Too many people on this free holiday admission day.

    Explore the vast collection of American art, especially the colonial portraits by John Singleton Copley.

  • Daniel B.

    Dont go there to just buy large posters, they are not helpful to let you access the main big gift shop without paying 50 dollar entry fee for 2, even tough we explained that we had to catch a flight!

    Instead the restaurant, try the courtyard cafetiria

  • Jim N.

    Try not to go in the middle of the day in the middle of the week. The place is rife with tours full of ungrateful children and obnoxious adults on cell phones. Also, avoid the on-site restaurant as

    Start your visit in the morning and wear comfortable shoes. There is so much to look at and you don't want to miss out on it. They have done an amazing job with that place.

    The map isn't very useful for figuring out what you have and have not seen. Bring a pen and mark off cells you've walked through. It is a confusing maze.
