This museum is dedicated to American artists. The collection is grand and encompasses many different works by both national and prominent local artists from many different time periods. The building itself is a historic treasure. It is quite grand and really breathtaking. There is this grand staircase in a large hall or room that is so opulent with its gold trimmings and the carvings, and the silver and bronze decorative features. It is just something you have to see! This is a real find and so very worth spending an afternoon exploring!
