I visited this museum specifically to see one painting in particular and ended up spending over three hours browsing the collections. The layout of the museum is confusing, and so I went backwards, chronologically, from modern to ancient. This actually worked for me, though.

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.
