  • This is a nice art gallery that is worth finding out the route to. Be prepared for walking as it is large and over a number of floors. There is a Henry Moore sculpture in the park outside.

  • It is free to enter this museum. It is one of the best Museums we have visited. Huge in terms of space and collection displayed. Paintings are stunning and art pieces are gorgeous. Staff is friendly. The restaurant is good too with limited vegetarian options but nice. Will recommend all tourists to definitely visit this place.
  • An interesting museum but we were asked to leave the fine arts section at 16.40 despite the museum being advertised as open till 18.00. If we had been warned of this when we arrived we would have gone there first. Unfortunately this meant we missed the modern art collections.
