Why locals love it

The building, completed in 1959, was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and is considered an important architectural landmark of the 20th century. Exhibitions are on display in the great rotunda, a marvel in itself to behold from the lobby, and the smaller galleries house the permanent collection.

Why you should visit it

Their exhibitions are always interesting and thought-provoking, and their permanent collection includes works from the 19th century to the present by such masters as Cezanne, Degas, Kandinsky, Picasso, and Monet. The building itself is worth the visit to take in its breathtaking views, whether inside or outside.

Special tip

When the museum was built, it was designed so that visitors would take the elevator to the top of the rotunda and work their way down the ramp.
