Dropped in because we discovered that the Burrell exhibit was present and soon to close. Many awesome works from French painters from the mid 1800s; unhurried viewing, up close. Permanent collection includes at least one Cezanne and at least 2 Degas

Nice little museum. Not a particularly large amount to see but a nice selection. The current exhibit on glass works of art is interesting.

We went to see the new exhibition at this museum after seeing a poster for "Le Rêve" in Aix-en-Provence. The exhibition is spread over 3 massive floors with 7 different sub titles. We were so surprised to see basically all of our favourite artists like...More
