Art Museums: If you crave cultural stimulation, this museum is an ideal destination. The renovated structure, built according to the strict instructions of millionaire benefactor Charles Frye, features a collection of representational art. Pieces are lit by sunlight from an overhead dome, according to Frye's mandate that natural light be the only means of illumination. Live musical performances and literary readings are also scheduled regularly. The museum also features a cafe and a store.
