Do not try to take in everything in one day. There is just too much to see in this museum. The miniature room exhibit, which I have ignored in the past, was a lot more interesting than I had thought.

Just the right amount of mix to cater for everyone’s taste, spacious and welcoming. Queue we’re inevitable but well worth the art on show, I would have liked to have spent days in there.

This is an amazing museum with a big stock of paintings.

If you love art, this is one of the best museums in US.

We loved Jackson Pollock and Monet paintings.
