“Nice mix of old and contemporary”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Great small museum with a very reasonable entry fee. There was a special exhibit of textile art when we visited and that was wonderful. There are some old Dutch Masters and other traditional art including sculptures and then there are very good exhibits of South African artists including resistance art from the struggle against apartheid. The museum is not large and about an hour or so covers it, but it is an enjoyable hour.

“Not very impressed !”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

I do have an eye for good art, but that is not all to visiting an Art Museum - there was really not much to see, the place is rather small and some spaces are closed for the Public. Would not go there again, even with a free ticket.

“Art museum in park”
Reviewed December 22, 2011

This art museaum has a good and varied collection, and it is set in a park, but parking one's car in the street is dodgy.
