A beautiful, peaceful gallery without the crowds of the bigger museums. Excellent display of Monet's Waterlilies, worth the visit. more »
Worth a visit. Small museum but the Money panels are incredible. Definitely take some time to sit on the benches and just really observe the paintings. Quite a lovely mix of art on the bottom floor that was a treat to see. Can be squeezed in between activities as it doesn't take long to visit.
The tickets were surprisingly cheap. The Monet exhibition was absolutely breathtaking, it felt like you were inside a painting. There were VR sets in the museum as well but the wait times were quite long, I recommend you to arrive early to reserve a spot. The other exhibitions were also noteworthy. Very well worth the time.
