“Lots to see”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

This is a free entry to a wonderful art galleries and museum. Child friendly and educational. If you go around 1pm there is usually a organ recital which is wonderful. It is also a peaceful place to just wonder around and feel good. If in glasow tis is a must to visit

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great day out. Lots to see, infact it would take more than a day to see everything. The Salvador Dali is fabulous - very special but loads of other things to see. The building itself is beautiful and we were lucky enough to be there when the huge organ was being played. Cafe very nice too although expensive. However the museum and gallery if free so can't complain.
