This small fine arts museum is thought to be one of the finest in the world. It's collections include masterworks from European, American and Russian painters. The museum also has the only publicly displayed Rembrandt in the city. One of the museum's highlights is that the paintings, sculptures and tapestries are all kept under natural light. While you could have quite a good time going over the paintings all by yourself, the docent guided tours are highly recommended. The building itself is quite beautiful, with a white marble and bronze motif.

  • Small, but impressive collection of art. They had some really beautiful pieces that were hundreds of years old. Don't miss this one!

  • I was there with my classmates and my professor is small gallery but very interesting.

  • The museum is small but the art they have is impressive. The price is free so dont miss this one if you are going to see any of the other nearby attractions.

  • A small museum with surprisingly rich art work. It's free, so if you're in Balboa, this is a must.

  • Free art museum with the current displays including Christianity and war pieces. Won't take you long to wander through and appreciate the pieces on offer.
