The most comprehensive museum I've ever visited. I wish the staff were friendlier and more helpful. Visited the Matisse Exhibit, a retrospective of the artist's work, which I toured with earphones. I thought the narrative was too basic and thus disappointing. The cafe, where I had lunch with a frequent visitor and fan of the museum, has lovely views overlooking the park. It made a lovely end to a too short visit. I can't wait to return to explore and discover more.

Get ost in here, or get the docent favorite tour. For special exhibits use the audio, it helps. sit in any gallery- watch the people or the art. A day not to be missed.

get there early, buy online to skip the lines and get the audio tour, very informative. bring an extra battery, just in case you take more pics than you battery can handle.

So many different collections here, it's hard to say what to see. I, personally, love the Impressionist collection and the Egyptian rooms. But check the website to learn about all the other artwork here.
