We spent here an afternoon but to see everything you need a whole day. We especially enjoyed the Egyptian collection and the Dutch and Flamish art. Do not forget to take a break in the most beautiful museum cafe I have ever seen.

The brochure for the Reubens exhibit explained each piece perfectly and was indicative of the care the curator(s) give to each facet of this museum. As you go through the permanent collection, be sure to see the rooms that skirt the main rooms.
