  • One of the best Art Galleries I have been to. Salvador Dali's most famous painting, Christ St.John of the Cross is featured there. Lots of lovely paintings, sculptures, Historical features here and there. Beautiful building in a beautiful area. I love it. I want to go back there to look at some more paintings. Art lovers please note!
  • This is a great place. First off, it's free, there's a suggested donation( please donate something you can). There's something for everyone. I took my friend from London & she totally loved it. Paintings , sculptures, interactive things for kids and an organ recital twice a day which is actually quite pleasant whilst walking around. Ancient historical relics, we were walking around Ancient Egypt when we we're advised they were closing.I'm sure there's much more than we saw!
