Probably not for the casual museum go-er, but if you have an interest in art well worth checking out. A very cool museum experience. Interesting exhibits and the staff is very knowledgeable. Enjoy!

Reviewed 2 August 2010

If you like art, go here. Nice café with student discount, bring your student-ID!They have a sitting area in front of the house when sunny. Several floors with different paintings, sculptures, instilliations etc. They also have a small art shop and an cute elderly lady selling you different effects.
