I'm no art aficionado, but my family has fun whenever we attend. Small compared to places like the DIA, but still worth a couple of hours, probably more if you're really into art. There are usually a couple of rotating special exhibits, and the grounds are beautiful.
The museum has several aspects to it. You may hike in the beautiful gardens and wooded areas, especially during mild whether. There are two museums, one art and one science.

Small museum but they had really cool shows when we visited. The property is beautiful and the quality of the show was top notch. If you get a chance to see the Nick Cave show that is currently going on, it's well worth it.
