  • Lots of good to very good works that get lost between the rooms in this huge building. I did not like the way the works were organized. Almost nothing is translated to english.

  • Well laid out and spacious. Too much to see in a couple of hours, but the ticket allows to come back later on the same day. The lighting could be improved a bit on some paintings as the frame casts a bit if a shadow.
  • Has everything a large museum has (time periods) but on a smaller scale.
