My husband and I aren’t art aficionados but we know the “big” names and thought it was fun to see them up close and personal! This is worth a quick trip or a longer trip if it’s “your thing”

It was an enjoyable visit. There are better museums in other cities but it was worth the visit. We went just before leaving the city.
