    There is almost too much to see in this vast collection, but the Arms and Armor section should not be missed.

    One word: STELLAR. Or how about BREATHTAKING...I came during an impressionist exhibit that was well worth the extra $5. You get access to 3 locations and are allowed 2 days to enjoy every single bit!

    This is one of the largest art museums in the United States, with more than 227,000 pieces but a big attraction for its annual visitors is the 25 or more special exhibitions it puts on each year.

    Beautiful! But a bit expensive for tickets... I would suggest going on a weekend where you can get in free with a Bank of America card (usually first full weekend of the month)
