We were impressed with the museum's vast and varied collection. We spent hours checking out each of the rooms and marveling at how big the museum is and how well it is organized.

Spent a few hours walking through this facility. Although not extensive there is a very nice selection of art and sculptures covering the last few centuries. Additionally there is nice room covering ancient Chinese art.
