  • I love the admission-free rooftop garden. It is a nice and peaceful place to enjoy the sunshine and have good views of the harbour.
  • Don't miss the roof garden when you finish the visit before you leave, it's among one of the greatest view of the honour
  • Good modern local art and a temporary exibit of local photo artists who where present to answer questions
  • We walked up to the rooftop garden (free) and got the lift down into the museum. There was a free music performance that we got to watch as well!
  • Good correction of Spanish art in the permanent collection.
