Fodor's Review

If you're in the area, this one-room museum is a great way to spend a half hour. Its bright space hosts five rotating exhibits per year showcasing American folk art, tribal art, and contemporary crafts. One exhibit saw the museum transformed into a forest of plants, trees, and a river, all created from paper by an artisan in Japan. Another was devoted entirely to the art of the ukulele. The tiny shop in front (no admission fee) sells high-end, sometimes whimsical artworks.
