Enjoyed waking around this museum. The history of Earth on the first floor is very interactive and would be great for kids. Enjoyed the second floor. The poppies for remembrance was great. The art was beautiful. Love a Monet.

I visit primarily to see the art collection which is world class. Currently some Leonardo drawings and Arte Mundi competition but the regular exhibits of Impressionist post impressionist are significant. There is much much more too.
