  • The private library was incredible and impressive. Beautiful building and many interesting items including a Gutenberg Bible and a nice exhibit of Charlotte Bronte writing and drawings. 
  • The description promises more than what can be seen. The manuscripts are very interesting, the descriptions as well, but the entrance fee is high compared to other museums and exhibitions.

  • Nice and peaceful museum by Pier Morgan. Do get hold of a guide to navigate. Makes it way more interesting.
  • Lovely and quiet place. Lovely and quiet people. It is small but with a lot of information to read and appreciate.
  • Great dip into the city's and country's history in this former library turned museum. The grand architecture makes it feel like a religious experience. Very well put exhibitions.Take advantage of the free entry on Friday evenings, when there's a nice buzz of people and live music.
  • They have done a great job making this place handicapped accessible with a series of elevators and lifts. Very extensive collection and highly recommend.
  • Don't miss the Dubuffet exhibit. A picture titled something like "everything in the world" which was a round dining room table full of a Jackson Pollock look of clutter. So validating to me an my cluttered (but now everything in the world) horizontal surfaces.
