The building is great in itself, really big and light and then it's filled with a huge amount of fantastic artwork. So many great artists to see - definitely expect to spend at least 3-4 hours here to see things properly.

I arrived shortly after the 9:30 AM opening and found it much easier to appreciate the incredible collection. The museum was more crowded by the end of my visit but nothing as bad as the Louvre. Wonderful experience!

A manageable size and included in the museum pass. An audio tour is available on itunes from Rick Steves. I've been here twice and would return

If you love the impressionists, you must visit this museum. Earlier in the day is a better time to go as the crowds pick up fast. We saw a great starry/spacey visiting exhibition that we loved.

If you are an art lover you could easily spend the whole day here. If you don't know this is a beautiful old railway station converted into a world class museum.
