We went there for First Friday. In addition to the great exhibits, there was a complimentary tasting of a cocktail and a table where you could make a craft.

We stopped at the museum to give ourselves a break during a long road trip. It was only a short distance from the highway. We enjoyed the museum - it was bigger than I expected and had many interesting exhibits.

Nice place to visit. We’ve been several times. Makes a nice and free indoor activity in the city. Great to take out of town guests to. Pompeii and other traveling exhibits should not be missed.
