Went there recently. A bit expensive but its OK. Service is good. Some were very kind. And you get the chance to learn about history through the different paintings. Id describe it as Interesting.

A little pricey at 13€ each but still a good way to spend a few hours . Really good collection - pollock, warhole and an impressive Picasso collection. The museum itself is a beautiful building .
