This museum is closed. Enjoyed a pleasant walk there but very disappointed. Cannot find where there is a temporary location. Looks like it will be under construction for a while.

All art lovers should visit this gallery. Not the best location, and a dull-looking building from the outside, but work exploring inside. Modern art, 19th century and some older. Greek artists predominate.
