  • Came here for a visit even though there are some bad reviews. We were actually very impressed so not sure why the bad reviews. It took us about an hour to go through all the rooms and there was plenty to look at. Beautiful building.
  • The museum itself with its paintings and pictures is a little disappointing, however, the large open square in the middle of it is well worth the entry! Beautiful architecture and a great place to see!
