The upper Floor of the museum shows art from native American Indians: really fascinating. Specialy Molly Murphy’s work.

Went to the Farmers market and walked pass and went in. Free to everyone. They are ADA . The Art changes a couple times a year. They also have some art sculptures outside. Great place to take a picture to remember your time there.

Lovely rainy-day activity. Free! All exhibits when I visited were by Native American or First Nations artists. The art made me think - always a good thing. If you like modern art or Native art (real Native art, not tourist kitch) you would enjoy this....More

This museum is very well laid out, spacious and inviting. The staff was very welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable... unfortunately, "modern" art is not our cup of tea, which the exhibits were this time. We would still recommend the museum.

I spent more than an hour marveling at the Hmong cloth exhibit that featured clothing and artifacts from daily life.
