Exhibits Alone Not Really Worth the Time Jul 02, 2015
The events that this museum offers might be what makes it worth a visit; I was there when there were only exhibits and I was definitely disappointed.

One small room had some yarn art from native tribes in Mexico. A hallway had low glass cases lining each side; they held pottery from an older time.

The art exhibits were mainly temporary, so they rotated. The one that was there was called "MaĆ­z" and while I appreciated the bilingual placards, I did not find the artworks very interesting.

Finding the museum also ended up being a little tricky. I actually drove right past it because the only sign was up on its wall, a wall that is close to the sidewalk. Finding parking was another concern since all the nearby lots said private parking for whatever business. The museum's website says that you can park in next to the fire station but there are no signs there saying that so hopefully you used the website to plan your visit.

Cost was $5. I do not recommend spending that money just to see the exhibits; make sure there is a program or class going on when you visit. I was there for less than an hour.
