BUT, let start out by saying that I actually enjoyed visiting this museum. The Kempers and their foundation have done a terrific job of gathering collections to exhibit. The artwork runs the gamut from traditional oil on canvas to some of the newest techniques. Don't forget to go downstairs to see the library and private saloon! An added benefit was... 更多
Always an enjoyable outing that exhibits a fine permanent collection plus rotating exhibits of great interest. Our group this time fortunate to have new impressive curator give us the history of the original house and the museum's history. Lunch in pretty setting available certain days.

Looking for a nice spot to have a light lunch that isn't fast food? This is the place to be! They serve lunch Wednesday and Thursday each week and the menu changes as well. This is a great spot for a girls luncheon, client lunch or just a date spot. Enjoy the art and the food!
It displayed local arists. Beautiful building and history. Eat some lunch why you are there. Make sure you go downstairs to view the black and white room.
