the very best of byzantium; including frescoes from a chapel painstakingly stored at menil. icons and mosaics are nicely displayed, but frequently lack information on provenance.

One of the very few places in the world to view greek orthodox ancient icons and learn about the different painting techniques, mosaics and much more

If you aren't interested in Byzantine art and icons then don't bother...you'll be bored.
