We visited this Museum with my wife. There was few people in the museum but almost 5 security personnel for each tourist. What's more disturbing was the security personals keep eye-watching you so long that you feel you are a guilty person or unwanted there....More

The museum has a great collection: while not the British Museum (or even the MFA for that matter) it has the beat of what a smaller museum should have to offer. That is, a serendipitous collection that emerged through the power of the school and...More

The work displayed here, as other people have said, makes it well worth a visit. We particularly liked paintings by Corinth, Metzinger, Jawlensky, Sargent and Holman Hunt; and the half hour tour on orientalism was excellent. Most of all, though, we noticed how beautifully curated...More
