White walls and space-age lights make this museum a tranquil escape from the traffic outside.

Exhibit halls are filled with brightly colored artwork and sculptures even young kids will enjoy. Family Days are held on the second Saturdays of the month (11 a.m.-3 p.m.) and include hands-on art activities. Admission is free for families with children 12 and under, and activities are appropriate for all ages. Stroller Tours are held the first Wednesday of the month (11:30 a.m.).
