My wife and I were thoroughly impressed with the amount of art covering so many eras and genre. The Picasso section was fascinating to explore.

I went here with my School for an art project. This museum was really good for it, it was all really interesting and nice to go to. If you’re into postmodern art you should definitely go.

We really enjoyed these extensive collections. They were grouped well and the rooms were light and airy with couches to rest and reflect. Picasso's were fantastic and we loved the photographic collections as well. Highly recommend
