Named after the founders of Esquire magazine, who contributed the start-up money, this is the official fine arts museum of the university. The collection holds 5000 years' worth of fine arts. Twentieth century paintings and sculptures, central European expressionism and East Asian art are the strong suits. De Goya, Warhol and Kandinsky are just a few of the big-name artists hanging around.

Frank Lloyd Wright's table and chairs mix in for good measure. It only takes a half-hour or so to see the galleries. After that, grab a drink or bite at the front cafe. From September through mid-June, the museum stays open until 8pm on Thursdays.
