The museum was nice and we had a lovely meal in the restaurant. The gift shop is one of the nicest I have ever seen. They have a variety of items. Everyone will find something. Worth going to.

Really enjoyed this Meuseum. It was surprising how much there is to see inside! We only had 2 hours and didn't get to see it all but there's some fantastic artwork on display. Would recommend that you take at least 3-4 hours to explore, and...More
