I visited this museum specifically to see one painting in particular and ended up spending over three hours browsing the collections.

Very interesting museum on at least two basement floors (probably three), also large reception area and an upstairs too. Plenty to see so make sure you leave yourself enough time to visit the art galleries as well as all the artifacts hidden deep in the bowels of the museum!

Extremely pleased with this museum. The archaelogy exhibit was fantastic and worth the visit. Enjoyed the Rodin and other sculptures and paintings throughout the museum. The cabinet of curiosities completed the tour in a fascinating way. Recommended as an end of the day, relaxing tour.

Didn't go in as they are in the middle of renovation and the areas I was interested in - ancient history and medieval are closed. Wish I had known before I did the walk there!
