Don't waste your time. The gallery is almost empty. Go to the national museum.
Definitely worth a visit! Intriguing artwork, and I think I literally spent hours there.
Almost empty, rest is almost entirely art of princess which is not as good to give it like 4 rooms. No other artist would get this recognition if it weren’t a princesses
Great exhibition. Especially, Marsis great paintings.
Small art gallery, but nice exhibition running there
