    If you're having a bad day or just need a smile, go to the 4th Level (19th Century) and there is a giant painting of the most serene cow. I have named him George, and he will make you smile.

    If you want to go into the ticketed exhibits it's worth buying a membership since it's good a year from purchase and gives you free tickets every time you come. Pays for itself!

    The museum is free except for special exhibits and its huge. Don't forget to check out the hackerman house for the Asian art. It's tricky to get to so ask for directions.

    Look for the extraordinary Rubens Vase, carved in high relief from a single piece of agate, was most likely created in an imperial workshop.

    Take advantage of the self guided audio tapes. Also make sure not to miss the collectors study off the armor room. Beautiful!
