This was not what I was expecting, but interesting none the less. Some of it was not to my taste and some I found fascinating. It is a small place and does not take long to wander around.

This is a nice museum with well curated galleries. There was room for reflection and enough places to sit. The gift shop was filled with compelling pieces as well. I will be going to visit again.
