  • The Museum has a fine collection of paintings, but lighting is to improve. I regretted a bit too eclectic in the presentation a little bushy.

  • Free accessible museum with a nice art collection. Located on the walk from train station to old town.

  • Surprised that when ordering two tickets there was informed that the access is free, we are not in the UK? Request our bag to put in an open closet with access for the other visitors encountered some resistance, but this relation also behind the counter. The lady told us that the upper rooms very, very, very hot and that we only had to walk through it quickly. Eventually though. But climate control late in this museum very to be desired and you'll see that this is the paintings visible also not doing well. The overall quality of the collection is on a single great work fun and may indeed not a whole lot more than the entrance fee are free.
