The big names are few and the quality of their work is nothing to get excited about. This museum is mainly about portraits and the fantastic display of the art. The total concept takes the collection to another level.

Nice museum, if you like art, you are going to love it. If you are not a huge art fan, I’d say you don’t have to go out of your way to visit it. Nothing special.
