Although the museum is small, the quality of the paintings is excellent and well laid out. The collection include works by van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, Modigliani, Chagall, Picasso plus Japanese art. Definitely worth a visit to escape the heat or the rain.

I liked the small rooms radiating from a central atrium containing different exhibits. The museum is quite small but has some intersting works.

This is a lovely museum that is tranquil and a welcome change from the crowds. They have a lovely permanent collection of 19th century paintings. What struck me the most was that for being small, they had a Berthe Morissot and 2 Marie Laurencin paintings....More
