  • amazing pieces but you need a bunch of time if you want to see all the exhibitions (around 2 hours total). i would recommend if you have the mental capacity to invest into the artwork for that long. it had paintings and sculptures from renaissance up until the 60s-70s (and some modern pieces as well), a whole art experience in my opinion.
  • The gallery was nice but very small, they had a few rooms dedicated to medieval to 18th century art and two short time exhibitions. There are only a few places to sit down and enjoy the art. I also thought it was super cold, definitely bring a sweater or cardigan. Don't forget to bring only a small bag, big bags gave to be left in a small locker.
