It's definitely whimsical and fun - a rabbit warren of mishmash and shiny objects. I guess I thought it would be a bit bigger. It gets a little crowded on weekends when the sun is out and some folks like to camp out in one spot for a full-out photo shoot. I think it would be much more fun when it's less crowded or maybe with kids. Though there are a lot (a LOT) of genitalia, if that's something that bothers you. It's cool to see where the original studio was, and there are indoor spaces with more folk art that is interesting, plus there's a small eclectic gift shop. It takes about 30 minutes for even a comprehensive tour. I think $15 is a bit steep for what it is, but I'd also hate to see it go away.
A really fun and exciting experience. Truly unique. It’s not very big and you can easily go around in an hour or less but just sitting in the space for a while is also really nice. I wish they’d had more plaques and information around the gallery explaining what was there.
Found this Lil hidden gem. It's a cozy Lil museum. They are dog friendly as long as the dog is in a backpack carrier, website says no backpacks but they do allow em. They just ask that you move it to the front of your body in order to not bump into the art in the walls. You can even check your bag if you want. Parking is mostly street parking (paid) there are signs that say 2hr or 3hr parking depending on zones. There are pay boxes everywhere. You just need your plate number. No need to display ticket on your dashboard.
Such a cool place! Be sure to get tickets in advance if you come on a Saturday — I heard workers say it was sold out. We spent about 30 minutes exploring the entire area (95% outdoors) and loved all of the nooks and crannies.
This is a place you can go to over and over again and find something new. There is much to discover; from the intricate detail on each tile to the picture at large in which the tiles join together to form. Whimsey, creativity, and portals to magic at every turn. It may be a "smaller" space physically but take the time to let your imagination wander into the space. It is spectacular and amazing to realize just how much is packed into it.
