  • Fantastic local museum with a lot of work on display. 3 floors, top is early artists, middle floor is classical(?), basement is modern. They also had a featured Picasso room on the ground floor when I went there. There were so many pieces that one day per floor wouldn't do it justice.
  • A lovely museum full of amazing art. It has everything from the old masters to contemporary genius. Anyone that enjoys any type of art will find something here to enjoy. There is a lovely restaurant on the inside as well. Definitely worth the stop.
  • Amazing pieces of art, from very old (1400s) to very new (present day). The shape of the galleries have you weaving in and out of rooms so it's a step-counter's delight. Lovely gift shop and cafe. Only wish they had posted the brand and color of the wall paints because they were spectacular!
  • Beautiful museum! Not so big that you get exhausted, but large enough in which to spend a few hours. Would definitely recommend :)
  • Good collection of Renaissance and pre-Impressionist works as well as some surrealist and German painters. Manageable in a full day.
