“Awesome museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2014

So much too see, too little time. Need another visit. However, for me, the Egyptian artifacts were amazing and probably my favourite, although the Greek exhibition was a close 2nd .

“Lose yourself in art and history”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2014

What a find! I'd cycled past it once too often and one rainy day, decided to pop in. Hours later I emerged and I am going back again. The staff are informed and friendly and there are guided tours, which are excellent, that you can join. The cafe is lovely and the building impressive too.

“Free Art Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014

Terrific collections of art and ceramics. Well worth a good donation. Has a gift shop and small cafeteria. And you can take pictures in the museum as long as you don't use your flash.
