    Nice art museum just next to the waterfront. I saw the Pixar limited run exhibition, which was very good. I also looked at the vaguely titled 'paintings' section, which was impressive, but not giant names, so don't go if you're only looking for very famous work.

    Building is beautiful! I strongly recommend to visit the roof garden, which is free of admission!
