    Pick one exhibit to see, browse in the gift shop or get snack in the cafe and then leave. Otherwise, you'll have museum overload!

    There's always some weird little exhibit of embroidery to pore over. And don't forget to stand in the Frank Lloyd Wright room and imagine you live there with a dozen cats.
