This is a lovely private home-turned-museum, that brings you up close to some wonderful works of art from Monets to Picassos to a Calder—without the crowds. Although the home is mostly unfurnished now, it's still a much different feeling to see art this way than...More

We went on a group tour that was very nice. Collection is small but excellent. Of particular interest were early works by Mondrian and Van Gogh that were unusual and unlike what we usually think of when think of these artists. Building itself is worthwhile.
