opened the doors of its beautiful neo-classical building in 1932. Today
it houses a fascinating collection of over 17,000 objects from ancient
times to the present; artworks from Africa, Asia, the Americas, and
Europe, with particularly strong collections of American paintings,
decorative arts, and Victorian toys and doll houses.
