Founded in 1937, this is one of the country's finest museums of contemporary craft, and in 2007, the museum moved to this new location on the tree-shaded North Park Blocks. Throughout the year, works from the permanent collection share space with changing exhibits that might focus on an individual artist or a single theme. Cutting-edge ceramics and jewelry are always highlights of exhibits here, but you might catch a show focusing on crafts incorporating bamboo or an exhibition of artist-made books. From here it is just a few blocks to the art galleries in the Pearl District.
