Fodor's Review

On a boardwalk that rings the coastline, this museum of ceramic art is equally impressive and bewildering. Its founders commissioned more than 1,000 faithful reproductions of Western-art masterpieces on ceramic panels, the concept being that while Picasso's painting Guernica or Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel ceiling may fade with time, ceramic reproductions of them will live on forever. Exhibits are arranged by era, from antiquity to modern times, and it's all there, from a Pompeian banquet scene to Rembrandt's self-portraits to Warhol's Marilyn x 100. Cumulatively, the artworks are a bit overwhelming, though certainly not forgettable.
