The entire area that the museum is in is great to start with (the Grove and Farmer's Market are right up the street and there are tons of cool cafes and shops around), and the building itself is gorgeous. Then there's the adorable park and street lamp area outside (fun enough for a day trip by themselves!). Throw in cheap tickets ($10 for students), awesome exhibits (ranging from surrealist drawings to French ceramics and American swim suits), and good food (C+M is AMAZING) and I'm completely sold.
We all had a blast and will definitely be going back. It was so relaxing to be able to just wander around and see beautiful works of art everywhere you turned, and I hope that everyone gets the chance to visit some time or another because it really is an amazing place.
Any questions, comments, or concerns are greatly appreciated :)
