I highly recommend the docent tours. The highly trained tour guides give fascinating details about the history behind the art and the artists.

There was art of course, which was good. Also glimpses into the past with furniture & utensil displays. Fun to guess what they were! It was obvious that the guides love the items in the museum. They want to protect & share the beauty.

This is a place you can visit daily and not get tired or bored. Well, maybe tired, because it's a lot of walking. But always a great education and entertaining. Love it!
