What people say

"This free art museum is a treasure trove of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, Decorative Arts, and Asian art. You can spend as much or as little time here as you would like, depending on how you feel about art. One of the top pieces to see here is Caravaggio's "Saint John the Baptist in the Wilderness." You can also enjoy the museum grounds by having a picnic lunch on the lawn near the badmitton birdie statues or they have mini golf on the lawn when the weather is warm. Although tickets are free, I would recommend reserving a time online so you don't have to wait, but you can also get tickets day of when you go in person. "
