  • This is the second art museum that I have visited and I have to say this one beats the other one by a longshot. It's nice and roomy so there useally isn't a problem with too many people being in the way. The best part about this though in my opinion is the workshop that they have here. There you can create your own art and other people can see it. You can also find a nice cafe here too. I give 5/5
