    Beautiful art! Also in a beautiful location. Wish I could've spent more time there. You could spend a good chunk of time here! Loved the gift shop too!

    Amazing little museum. Beautiful artwork set into an amazing location. The building itself is beautiful and full of little odd bits to grab your attention, like animal foot prints in the floor tiles or random sculptures. Totally worth a couple hours, especially on a rainy day!

    The museum is a fabulous collection. Currently showing an Andy Warhol, and Asian Lego artist on loan. From sculpture to paintings it is quite a treat. Stay for lunch at palette, their in house restaurant. It is a delightful culinary experience, and well kept secret!

    This is a nice stop on your long drive for the day. It is quiet, not packed, and you have the freedom to roam the museum at your leisure. The art is beautiful and there are several mediums to view there. We did not do the audio tour, but if we were to go back, I would probably spring for that, just remember to bring headphones because it is through your phone. It is a small museum, but considering the location, it is big enough. I would not bring anyone under 18 unless they were art enthusiast as I think they would feel bored. If I did bring younger people, I would probably bring them a sketchbook and some supplies to keep them occupied and to encourage their inner artist. They had several pieces that I stood in front of taking in all of the details for 5 minutes or more. Some of the pieces are absolutely beautiful! This museum is definitely for an older crowd, so just keep that in mind for your planning. As someone in their mid 40s, I enjoyed it and would probably go again.

    This is worth taking a half-day to visit. More than just a collection of animal paintings, it places wildlife art in its historical context, explaining the shifting views on nature and wildlife during the artists' lifetimes and how these are reflected in their work - in addition to the intersection of subject matter with popular artistic styles such as the Impressionist movement. Most of the pieces are paintings, but there are also sculptures and photography. It broadens the perspective to see that concerns over wildlife issues - and conversely, the role of nature in the life of man - are not merely a modern phenomenon but that people have been grappling with these questions for a long time. I would place this museum on the same level as any inner-city institution.
