  • The building is a stunning piece of art. Should be appreciated from the outside rather then inside exhibits. The garden areas are tranquil and peaceful forgetting that you are in a busy area...

  • A pretty cool lights display! This lights art installation is amazing and worth the visit to this place. It really lights up our spirits too! Only drawback is that you can never take a picture without any people walking amongst these lights, since this place is super popular and will have tons of people visiting it at any time of the day. But the best time to see this grandeur is after dark, once the lights are on and shining bright!!
  • Beautiful. I’ve been wanting to go take pics there for a while and it did not disappoint. We went during a weekday and it was fairly empty. We did not go in, so I can’t attest for the art inside, but I do remember reading that you have to buy tickets in advance. The outside is beautiful and great for pics. If parking in their garage, prepare to pay $28 even if you only stay for a few minutes.
