I really enjoyed my experience here. They are very friendly here and allow you to photograph everything which I love. They have a temporary exhibition here until June 2019 where there are many religious Christian artworks by some of the top masters including Rubens and Caravaggio. My favorite are Rubens paintings. Some of these paintings give you tingles of energy and beauty watching them. The first floor and a part of the second have modern art and the higher floors have the classical and Baroque paintings and some sculptures as I have seen what I believe is a Rodin there. Highly recommend this place.
A wonderful place with various collections. You can easily spend 3 hours there. You can find both temporary and permanent collections. The museum is very modern in its design and brightly colored. Very good location as well (easily accessible). If you're a teacher, the entrance is free.
