  • Lots of classics and always a fresh exhibit. The best part is that it isn't too big a place that you can't see it all in a few hours. Oh, and bring a sweater. It's very cool in there.
  • Solid art museum. I see why it's so renowned. Surprisingly not very busy either. It's not super extensive, but for the size of the island it is very impressive. Don't miss the parking lot. It's tiny and right before the museum. Also bags need to be checked at the main desk but it's free so not a big deal. They have staff to let you know what can be photographed and what can't be. Make sure you go to their outside exhibits as well. Not many but worth your time.
