Easy to find hidden gem. Worth the very short drive, even see people walking to here. Be sure to check out the grounds in the front and behind the museum.

The show stopper here is the gorgeous sculpture garden that is set on a perfectly manicured piece of land overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. My young daughter was enthralled by the sculptures, and I really appreciated that museum staff had a drawing pad and pencil ready...More
