“First Visit to Museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I like the little tram and the fact that although it was drizzly they provided umbrellas. Very helpful staff. Dining options are also available.

“Amazing, exhausting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Too much to see in one day or one trip. Amazing to walk, to sit and eat, take in the view. Don't miss it.

“World class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This is indeed a world class museum exhibiting artworks to rival any collection world wide. Admission is free but there is a $5 fee to park. The restaurant is superb.
