The whole building itself is beautiful on the inside. The way in which paintings in the storage area are displayed is unique and the idea of projecting what you read on the walls, rather than sign boards is a great idea. The collection of paintings displaying the different periods in history is very well done and very interesting.

Stunning views from the roof. Interesting permanent exhibition plus the joy of watching art restorers at work through the glass that separates them from the visitors
