I have visited there on several occasion and have never been disappointed. I suggest getting there early and then going to the Farmers Marker in the United Nations Plaza. Check for the dates when I went it was Tuesday and Thursdays.

The museum is located across the City Hall. It has a wide selection of permanent pieces that are totally worth seeing on top of whichever exhibition you go to see. The cafeteria is also very unique.

Only one floor open, bit still full price. We were not even warned about this at the front desk. Very unfear attitude towards the customer. Not much to see with just one floor.

Civic Center
Civic Center is the seat of power for all things
government and performance-related in the city.
Although its streets are best walked during daytime,
numerous cultural gems are within close proximity to
one another. The symphony, opera, ballet, and jazz
center offer year round entertainment within the
shadow of the city’s Beaux-Arts crown jewel: the gold
tipped dome of City Hall.
