  • Renovation turned this place into a gem. They removed their previously dominating stodgy renaissance to a small couple rooms on the side and replaced it with an incredible contemporary art collection. It's a small museum you can absorb in just over an hour, but well worth the visit.
  • Free admission, excellent collection of art on display here. Enjoyed going for a stroll with my wife and a newborn baby. Peaceful and not crowded.
