We were taken to the Museum, not knowing what to expect, but the whole experience was very impressive. The building, the decor, the Paintings and Exhibitions. The Cafe and Bookshop adjacent were well worth a visit.

Not a lot of artifacts, just a few rooms opened for view. Nice experience with a wonderful little gift shop and a cafe to sit outside.

Loved this museum/Galleries and the fact that it used to be an actual house made it better. Loved the original rooms that were kept as they were.

A gorgeous building, really helpful staff and detailed info on every art exhibition, as well as the building itself. Went with elderly family members and we all enjoyed the visit equally.

We did not eat at the museum. However, if you're looking for a great breakfast, I'd suggest Le Cafe Sursock which is about a half block away. The traditional breakfast is enough to share for two and was reasonably priced at... More
