A fantastic museum, with free entry, but donations welcomed. It has a fantastic art collection, including Impressionists, Pre-Raphaelites and Dutch Golden Age masterpieces. Friendly, helpful staff and a nice cafe. Very well worth a visit.

Loads to see well marked with interesting facts. We didn’t visit the painting gallery as small children really weren’t interested but the rest of the museum was well set out with plenty for everyone to look at.
