Among various classes of artwork including sculpture, paintings, prints, drawings, photographs, armor, and decorative arts, visitors will find van Gogh's Sunflowers, the world's largest Marcel Duchamp, and the only dedicated Rodin Museum outside France. Whether you're visiting for the first time or the fiftieth, you will always see something new.
