This museum café was literally in our backyard, and while we loved its location, straddling the canal with a great view of the water... the food and value was just so-so. The menu is a bit limited, but decent given the size of the museum!...More

The museum is wonderful. It is beautifully located and the exhibitions are mostly really good. The restaurant is nice and looks out over the water. Well worth it.
