  • On Monday morning of September, we peacefully visit this museum. Oops! We arrived around 10:00, all the temporary exhibition rooms were invaded by a crowd of children loud toddler with supervision not always at the height and sometimes unpleasant with visitors who pay the ticket and a comment like "go ahead, we work". So, if it's true! So we could not approach some paintings whose access was blocked. At the exit, we did share our observations to the front desk staff; compassion! "We are aware, you're not the first to complain". This museum, which should be a sanctuary dedicated to the art became a school playgrounds for children at a young age. As long as this situation persists, I strongly recommend visiting this museum.
