Reviewed 11 May 2012

The museum is free. They do ask you pay 1 pound for a map. All London museum seem to be doing this now.

“Great if you love art”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

We saw Monets, Manets, Van Gough's and much more. It was interesting to see, but I'm not that much into art. My daughter, who is an artist absolutely loved it.

“The best gallery of all”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

It's free of charge!!!
There are many famous pictures in the gallery. It's very amazing to see the real picture that I used to see in the book. I can spend all day in there. It's not very crowded so you can take your time and walking around slowly.

“A real art place...”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

Although it is a little bit crowded, it is a real art place -or "palace" ? :-)
