“Wonderful Museum”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This art museum is full of classic art. It is well laid out and thought out. If you get a chance, go on one of the Lates nights.

“self service fo tea”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

I took the time to view the Dutch collection this vist. Each visit here can be great. It was late though, and we needed a pick me up, so tried the self service section of their cafe for tea. Great selection of sweets , big tea, and not a bad price.

“Not to miss”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Make sure you leave sufficient time for this extensive collection. While I was disappointed that the guided tour had so many visitors--and I would suggest that additional guides be made available--the map makes it very easy to do on your own. One of my colleagues used the audioguide and she said it was excellent.

“London Must See”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

Excellent collections, displayed well, many staff available to answer questions. Several of the individual descriptions of art pieces contained errors--made me wonder who was writing them and what their background was.
