We were on a bus tour with school kids, so we did not get to go into the museum, BUT we did get to run up the Rocky Steps. The outside architecture of the site was beautiful, and the run of the steps was fun.

I enjoyed visiting the museum and focusing on the modern art collection. The gift shop and cafeteria were also part of the experience.

a great museum worth to walk from the city center. You cannot enjoy every part of it; but you'll have difficulty in the selection process. Personally, the contemporary and modern art sections takes all my time
