Spend an hour and see how ancient art can influence and mix with modern. What a wonderful collection that was donated! Really a fun experience. However, the lighting needs a bit of work in order to identify all of the works.

This museum is a great discovery. You can see a beautiful collection of from antique to middle age periods. And a touch of modern art between the various objects is a good idea!
