  • I went to see a special exhibit of Picasso. Each description panel about paintings, Picasso is very easy and interesting read. Also, many things like other painters such as Monet did. Museum Shop you would want a lot.

  • Very comfortable exhibition hall. A lot of romantic works, it is worth appreciating slowly, the museum side collection many impressionist works, the Ministry of Quality is also very let people forget to return. There are comfortable forest trails outside.

  • I really enjoyed my time here. It was a cold, misty morning so while waiting for the weather to clear we spent a few hours here. I'm not really an art buff, but the quality of the pieces here really blew me away. Well worth the price of admission.
  • If looking at a bunch of old glassware isn't your cup of tea, avoid this museum at all costs. Some Monet paintings and the small Japanese gallery were the only 'highlights'. Very overpriced too for what it is. Each to their own.
  • Incredible to find a world class institution on the lonely road. We had had our fill of black eggs and pirate-themed lake cruises and this was a very welcome change of pace.
  • Superbe Galle exhibition. Good collection of Impressionists. Worth the visit.
  • Surprising Gem of a museum tucked away on an obscure mountain road. Serene, gorgeous location and really respectable collection. Beautiful architecture. There is an oddly priced restaurant inside, I would recommend eating before arrival, but it will tide you over. Get your camera ready before you even step onto the grounds... it's tremendously photogenic.
