    I am in love with this museum! I wish I had more days to explore and enjoy it; if I were a local, I would definitely purchase a membership. Don't forget to flash your student ID when buying a ticket!

    Great museum with really nice exhibitions! I got in for free because I used my Bank of America card the first weekend of the month. The three cheese macaroni is also good in the cafe downstairs.
