  • Instead of displaying their permanent collection by years/style, they organized by the "ABC'S" with each letter standing for a theme represented by the art on display. This is the first time I've been to a museum that does this. I liked that I was able to see sharp contrasts across history with how certain topics were represented. You could also see some similarities as well. I wish I had gotten an audio guide because it might have helped connect the historical periods and the artists better than I could. Definitely go! I recommend enjoying the tree filled park situated next to the museum.
  • Great museum! The alphabetical order makes it different and interesting from other museums. My favorite was letter R with portraits.
