There were certain artists that i wished i could see more works but otherwise i believe the collections are amazing and adds to a quality tour. i though felt that the whole place could be covered easily in an hour or so as it is not as spread and grand as some other museum i have been too

Fantastic food for the art lovers. The artists have done amazing job with the sculptures, paintings, abstracts everything. You should check the calendar for events, there are nice exhibitions happening around and if you are luck you might also meet some celebrity like I met Naseeruddin Shah!!
