  • An immense collection of art, a lot being religious but still impressive, especially with the spot lighting, including Caravaggio and Da Vinci. Marked down for there being only a couple of toilets at the entrance and there are 24 rooms to go round. The exit doesn't loop back to the entrance, so picking up bags and a buggy in the cloakroom meant walking all the way from outside, back round the block - not ideal. A lady at the entrance also said I can't let my toddler run around when in the gallery halls!
  • Wonderful place! Very nice art collections, Da Vinci's manuscripts placed in beautiful building. Not only pieces of art was worth admiring, but also interiors of rooms, architectural details, stairs, terraces, porches and of course library room like from Harry Potter movie ;)
