I always loved this Museum. I been there many time's, when I was a child, and as a adult. The Museum is still very big and very beautiful. I love the many styles of Art work. Great gift shops, The Japanese Art is on display there. You still need a map to get around the Museum, So you won't get lost. There's also the Great Rocky Statue in front of the building.
Had a really nice time. We got an annual membership at the end of last year, and this was the 1st we could go, due to my work. What a nice time. Got a bite to eat for lunch at the cafe, good food nice selection and prices were on par with local area. We went through 2 sections in our 4 hour stay. Can't wait to go back on next day off.
Thus is a great art museum!! You can enjoy many various art from around the world and era. Not only just displays but you can have experiences of traditional buildings and houses around the world. For example the third floor you can see a Japanese traditional house. It looks small and tiny to live, but it means Japanese people in the era are small enough to live in the house. It is very interesting. This is very huge museum so if you enjoy all of the art, you have to take all a day here. The first Sunday of a month and every Wednesday evening, you can enter only with some donations. Enjoy!!
Great museum! They offered student discounts plus had a fashion exhibit featuring a lot of designers. Outside of the museum is the famous Rocky statue, and around the museum closer to the back was the Mher Statue - an important person to the Armenian community. The interior is very spacious and has a lot of great things to see. Some places you can easily miss such as the Japanese tea house all the way in the back. It was great. Would spend 3-4 hours easily here if I had the time. I only got to see 75% of it. Would come back
This museum is stunning! It is a beautiful facility and absolutely massive. I got lost in here several times, and not in a bad way. The art they display here ranges from thousands of years ago to nearly present day. They do an amazing job with the upkeep of the building and atmosphere. I loved going through on my own at my own pace and just soaking everything in. I would definitely go back and do a guided tour, though. I did not get to see the whole building since it was massive and I could barely find my way back to the main hall! If you enjoy art or museums, this is definitely for you! Highly recommend!!
