  • This place was boring, paintings lack creativity , we felt this was a waste of 15 euro entrance ticket per person .  more »
  • The building is so beautiful. I enjoy the staircases when going from floor to floor. Sometimes I enjoy the surroundings more than the art on display. I love the place.  more »
