Very pretty building and really accessible with the tram. Only walked round the gardens. A bit unloved but the fountain was very pretty. The zoo bit was disappointing. But free so doesn’t particularly matter. Shame about some of the graffiti.

You can still visit the muses there and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. There is a lift at street level for those who are less mobile but you may need to get a more able member of you party to get one of...More

The grand entrance was under repair in mid May. Typically it has a flowing water feature. Both museums were interesting. There are many steps in the front so we exited through the park in the rear with far fewer stairs.
