Beautiful collection of art-work in a lofty museum. Paintings of great artists are on show, it is nice walking through the halls full of sun-light. What is important to know is that there is no entrance fee.

Do you want to see paintings by Cezanne, Dali, Gauguin, Manet, Monet, Picasso, Rubens, and Van Gogh? Well, here they are. And it won't cost you a penny. Also, a very interesting description of the evolution of art around the 19th and 20th centuries.
