Thursdays entry is free and it was very busy. I paid to see the Michael Angelo collection with an audio guide which was good. There are some other great galleries ranging from European to Asian and modern. Plus a nice cafe!

Enjoyed the museum with my teen. We were surprised how few teens attend, a great way to broaden their experience and awareness of other cultures and ideas
