  • This is an amazing building in a beautiful location. The standing collection is Spanish, high quality. Why not a standing Japanese collection? A great temporary exhibition was contemporary Japanese.
  • Nice modern museum, lacks sufficient airco, was really hot. Exhibition was relatively small, entry fee was fair. However we would have enjoyed it more if there was more art. Walk through it within an hour. The public gallery was really crowded and very boring. Except for the bigger Japanese drawings, which were impressive. Staff was extremely friendly!
