Beautiful museum, and many exhibits. Flows nicely. And buy admission to Jepson and you get entry into two other places as well....with a week to use the admission. Great deal!
Loved it! You pay twenty dollars for an adult ticket, and get three different locations. One of the locations is by a guided tour only. There is various art throughout the locations ranging from sculptures, interactive art, visual reality, surreal, modern, urban, you name it, it's there. Definitely add it to your to-do list!
I visit the Jepson several times a year, and I always enjoy my time spent there. Their exhibits rotate every several months, so there is always something new to view. In addition, the Jepson also hosts movie screenings and festivals throughout the year, which I find are always well attended and informative. There is also a dedicated interactive section for children that keeps them entertained and educated. This is a great place to spend a few hours on any given day. I really appreciate that the museum commonly shows how art and technology intersect, with the results greatly benefiting humanity. In my opinion, this is a highly recommended stop for tourists and locals.
We attended a wedding this past weekend at Jepson Center. The facilities accommodated 100 guests comfortably, enabled several parts of the building to be utilized including the main atrium and second floor balconies for interim activities. The building was bright, clean and uplifting for this special event.
My family and I thought this museum was amazing! The exhibits we got to see were a mix of glass sculpture, virtual reality, photography and more. The On the Road photo exhibit was marvelous. My kids (5 & 9) loved some of the interactive exhibits. We closed down the museum, and one of the staff members kept it open a few extra minutes because there was one room we didn’t get a chance to see. The museum store was also well stocked with different items. All in all, a great find!
