  • 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!
  • Beautiful architecture, good gift store. Had a free exhibition on photography on the ground floor.
  • The cafe inside is relaxing, with good view. The first floor is free admission.
  • Nice place to have great views of the harbour.
