“Download the App before you visit an exhibition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Best to book in advance. There are usually talks and special events worth checking out too.

This is the second exhibition for which I have bought the App first (£1.99 for iPhone) and it enhanced my experience each time.

The restaurant is excellent too. The cafe is tiny.

“Degas and the Ballet Exhibition”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2011

Big disappointments as the paintings were poorly lit and there were not enough of his great works on show.
