Plan a Visit

Inside our signature galleries and exhibits you will discover the skills and creative talents from the past, alive in the present day and enjoy vibrant expressions of nature that are breathtaking for visitors of all ages. To make your visit even more enjoyable, you can enjoy a tour with one of our docents. The docent will guide you through the galleries and give you insightful information on the art that is on display. Docents are on duty Wednesday through Sunday during gallery hours.

Outside waterfront relaxation awaits you. Browse the Sculpture Garden, walk the nature trail (borrow a back pack that's filled with outdoor activities for the little ones), observe native plants and wildlife, fish off the pier, paddle on the pond, or observe or sketch the scenery on the observation deck.
