This is a nice art gallery that is worth finding out the route to. Be prepared for walking as it is large and over a number of floors. There is a Henry Moore sculpture in the park outside.

It is free to enter this museum. It is one of the best Museums we have visited. Huge in terms of space and collection displayed. Paintings are stunning and art pieces are gorgeous. Staff is friendly. The restaurant is good too with limited vegetarian options but nice. Will recommend all tourists to definitely visit this place.
The museum has a "pay as much as you like" policy which is really nice to make it affordable for all people while still finding a way to maintain the museum! The collection is big and offers a wide variety of artists and epochs of art history. Besides the collection of paintings, there's also an archaeological exhibition and one about time. Be prepared that these two exhibitions only have description in French, but there's free WiFi so you could easily translate the texts. A nice add on were also the free menstrual products in the bathrooms 😊👍🏻
