  • Extensive collection of classical modern art. Interesting cubist painting. Beautiful temporary exhibition. Difficult layout of rooms and confusing plan. Direction signs would help, including one to the exit. Nice bookshop. Toilets need more attention and are smelly.
  • Lovely museum, spaceous, luminous. The expo we visited was very well put together.
