Spent a whole morning there and was left thirsting for more. All exhibits are very well displayed and organised. Clear notes and descriptions make it a treat for art aficionados and the untutored alike.

On Thursday the gallery opens until 8 PM. I highly recommend visiting the European room. There are many famous painting from Monet, Van Gogh, and many more artists.

Right across the street. A comprehensive collection (other than British). Particularly good for late 19th century French. Interesting special exhibits . And of course it is free. Seemed to have plenty of metered on street parking.
