It's not of the same calibre as MoMA in NYC or the Tate in London, but there were some lovely pieces. The best part of it was enjoying pieces where the vast majority of the subjects were NOT caucasian. That's rather rare and stood out.

Even if you have the slightest interest in art, and related matters then this is a must visit place. Some people may consider this as little boring, but it's surely bound to increase your interest in art.

It takes one complete day to even begin to do justice to this museum. Though the layout can get a bit confusing, the helpful guards always oblige
