What Our Visitors Say

We have been making the three-hour trip from Minnesota for years – not every year while we raised kids, but now we're renewing that tradition. Today, just mom and grown daughter – her first trip. I am here for Birds in Art, which was our introduction and our reason for returning year after year. It is stunning, inspiring, humbling, and so much fun to see and read each time. Thanks!

Digital Guestbook, 2020

Great art museum – I really enjoy that they get new exhibitions every few months. It keeps me coming back. I’ve gone here with my boyfriend and both of our families. Well maintained and clean place to enjoy art. Could spend a short amount of time or a few hours and have a good time.
