  • Really had a good time here with the family. Lots of different exhibits to look at and it was interesting for the whole family. Really liked that they had several interactive exhibits so it was more than just walking around looking at stuff. Good mix of several art mediums. If you have kids under 18, you should check out the kids portion first. You can even get free visits for them there and have some fun painting. Overall was a great time
  • While I went all the Renaissance, Reformation and Japanese parts of the museum were closed, I enjoyed the experience. Alone, with a friend or group, this place has everything for all parties. Seeing the beautiful arts and reading about the name, medium and age makes anyone coming learn something new. When I went I was able to see the orchestra and while I am not an active listener of clssical orchestra I enjoyed this one so much that it sparked an interest of this type of music. I spoke to multiple workers of the museum and they were all friendly. This is a perfect place to enjoy art with a friendly environment.
