“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

Gorgeous, quiet building full of a wonderful collection of photography, absolutely worth making time in your itinerary for. The roof terrace is a perfect spot for lunch or tea as well, and if you don't have time on the day the ticket remains valid for a re-visit another day.
