One of the Best Collections for a Museum of Our

Over the years, a lot of people have contributed to the strength of our collection. The difference maker between our institution and other mid-sized museums was one of the greatest Museum gifts in American history. It came from Walter Chrysler, Jr.

One of America's Six Magnetic Museums, and from Charity Navigator, the Nation's Most Fiscally Responsible Museum

Two authors searching for the most innovative American Museums settled on six prime examples, and we were one of the Magnetic Museums.

The nation's top philanthropic evaluator gives us four stars for how we handle your money. When Charity Navigator did its holiday gift guide, we learned we were the highest ranked museum in America.
