From the outside, the building looks like a generic retail outlet. The inside, however, is a marvel of design and layout. The collection is rather static, but appealing. I especially appreciated...

Wow - that guy Turner is everywhere, isn't he? I seem to see Turner paintings everywhere I go, and they never disappoint. Aside from the fiery, ethereal depictions of stormy seas and calm harbors painted by Turner, you will find an astounding collection of British portraiture here, especially from the 18th century. The zenith of the British Academical school, combining classical techniques with a lightly airy and even Rococo sensibility, can be found here. There's also more modern art here, which isn't really my thing, but I respect the creativity. The museum itself is elegant and spacious. I highly recommend coming here.
So I came here towards the end of 2021 and while it’s small and was able to get through it fairly quickly, it was still worth the time. The staff was very nice and there is a lot of good artwork from the British. Pair this with the university art gallery and it’s a great day of art. And it’s free. Which is a great reason to go.
