Thi s is one of my favorite museums in the entire world. It's the perfect size: manageable if you only have an hour, but filled with such well-curated exhibits that you could easily spend half a day inside. The architecture itself is a wonder, with suspended, spiraling steps and a precipitous drop four stories to a bright, glassy koi pond. My favorite thing about this museum is its dedication to interactive art—every time I come there's a piece I can touch, walk through, climb into or otherwise participate with. It was one of the first places I experienced that, and it's been integral in my love of art ever since.
