The gallery contains well placed paintings in lovely rooms in a beautiful palace. It also has a very good restaurant for lunch or tea.

Was never really a big Rembrandt fan until I saw “The Anatomy” in person. I also gained a new appreciation for Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. A fabulous building with magnificent art featured in every room. You can’t go wrong visiting here.
