  • I'm an art student. This place has great art. The ticket copy also gets you to the Brangwyn museum just down the street
  • I would never have imagined the vibrancy of the colours from paintings of that age to be as bold in reality. It was the ground breaking technology of the day, linseed oil.
  • Very interesting collection, and the reasonably priced admission includes another art gallery near by. Also they have clean comfortable bathrooms!
  • I highly recommend a visit if you have the slightest interest in flamish painting.
  • Great art museum which exhibit encompasses art from Medieval era up until modern times. The size and density of exhibit is just right so you won't feel overwhelmed because of it.
