Amazing place. Everyone should go here! There are works of art you've only dreamed of seeing, things from textbooks and works that are so amazing they are just "concepts" until you see them. Seeing these real works up close is second to nothing else for an art lover. Such amazing displays of skill. Highly recommend!
Lots of paintings and sculpture. I like a good Rembrandt as much as anyone else. The cafe was nice. I had the fish 'n chips. It takes several hours to go through the gallery if you want to properly appreciate the art. No sense in rushing things, even though admission is free.
It's free. How amazing is that. It is huge and beautiful and full of some of the most amazing and famous works of art and it is free. The building itself is worth visiting for. It is very big so make sure you set aside enough time. Staff were pleasant and helpful.
Its an art gallery, and its free. If that's the kind of thing your into then your likely to enjoy yourself. This place is not overrun by children so it can be a fairly relaxing place to visit. My girlfriend and I enjoyed ourselves.
This museum is extremely large and contains paintings from almost every famous artist in history, even if the paintings are not the most famous pieces from the artist. There are probably about ten or so pictures that are extremely famous, and those are the ones I was interested in seeing. The rest of the pictures are either not so famous, or by people you have never heard of unless you are an art history buff. Unfortunately, on the day I went there were many primary school trips to the museums and the dormant teachers encouraged students to sit down on the floor right in front of the paintings so they could draw their own renditions of them. This is extremely rude and inconsiderate because it makes it really hard to move around the kids to see the paints closely. I tried asking one of the staff in one of the rooms for help but she didn't speak English and had absolutely no idea what I was saying when I asked her where the Rembrandt paintings were. I eventually found them without her help. It is a long, tiring and busy day, and I am not sure it is worth it to see all the paintings and it can get extremely repetitive seeing so many pictures that look alike, but at least it is free.
