Wonderful art museum! My friend recommended me here, and it was great to tour. I enjoy art, and just being able to walk around and check out the art was peaceful. There are a lot of interesting pieces! It is free to get in which is the best part. I think this would be an awesome spot to take a date as well.
I went to the Dior exhibition and the pieces were beautifully arranged. The personal were not informative or so friendly, they were just standing there talking among themselves and telling us to not get too close to stands even when we were super conscious about our moves. It would have been perfect if it was a more interactive and guided tour. I've been in museums where they really welcome visitors and offer a memorable experience in every single exhibition.
