What Our Visitors Say

Thought this was the best "Birds in Art" ever. We think that every year, because they manage to curate amazing shows every year. Art is for the masses; it feeds a part of the heart, mind, and soul that cannot be fed in any other way.

Must Visit – We love this museum! It has something for everyone. Kid friendly and really neat stuff outside too. Changes often so you rarely see the same things twice.
