view web site ›'s insider take:

Founded in 1941, this museum has a surprisingly strong permanent Asian art collection, which includes earthenware Chinese zodiac figures dating back to the sixth century. It also houses American and European art from the 18th century onward (including works by Matisse, Singer Sargent, and Picasso) as well as more contemporary works, from pop art to the current day. In addition, there's an interactive gallery for kids and a variety of visiting exhibits, which have included new photography and video from China, and "Garbo's Garbos," 90 vintage photographs from the actress's private collection.

Open Tuesdays through Sundays 11 am to 5 pm.
