This museum exceeded my expectations. The art inside was intricate and unique with a variety of pieces from around the world and different times. It's also a decent size and well worth a visit.

Really wonderful small museum with many opportunities of engagement. Love the cafe space outside of the gallery. Beautiful outdoor grounds as well.

This museum is cool as hell. There's some unique art and it's situations right on U Chicago's campus in one of Chicago's most notable neighborhoods, Hyde Park. I went to a free charcoal figure drawing class there like a week ago, and they gave out free pizza.
