You need to allow half a day to do this outstanding museum justice. Superb collection of art works and glass exhibits will make this visit memorable.

There is just so much to see that it is impossible to see it all in one visit. If you are a fine arts enthusiast, you will be delighted in the museum' collections.

A wonderful museum with a large collection of great works of art! Make sure you have plenty of time to visit, because you don't want to rush through it.

One of the highlights of the museum the worldly collection of Peiter Bruegel the Elder works that can be seen.

One complaint is that almost... More
