The Museum is open to the public on the ground floor so lots of folks mingle about here. The galleries are crowded. It take a while to navigate the stairs and elevators to get to what you want to see!

The collections here cover all the major movements in modern art from the mid 19th century to now. Great permanent collections and creative exhibitions, all in a brand new space with excellent lighting, great public spaces, interesting architecture. A truly great museum.

"Went to the Matisse Diebenkorn exhibit during the last week"

Museum could have been an all day affair. The living wall was beautiful. Dining on the 5th floor was nice. The pulled pork on brioche was good, as was the barley soup. The lemon eclair...a fun idea, but not so tasty. Parking was $26 so you may as well leave the car there and walk around.

"Enjoyed the Matisse / Diebenkorn exhibition"

The Matisse exhibition was definitely the highlight of the museum for us. I visited with someone that has limited mobility and was able to use a wheelchair from the museum, which was really helpful. The wheelchairs are available from the cloak check and you just need to leave personal ID there until you return the chair.
