Such a gorgeous museum! I was only able to visit for a little over an hour, and I barely covered the first section. Clearly a lot of love and care goes into these exhibits! And they took care to make sure all the proper Covid protocols were followed. I cannot wait until I can visit again.
Exquisite and lovely museum. Love taking my teenage kids here, they love art. Great for a rainy day
