Absolutely amazing. The exhibits were so well presented and laid out so even a museum newbie like me could find and see everything I wanted. The Egyptian exhibition was especially brilliant. Oh and the building itself is so beautiful. I would 100% recommend any one to go. It is free to get in but they do have a donations box. Great place for a cheap but cultural date
Great nauseam. There is a wide variety of artwork. So if you have specific interests you will probably find one of the gallery's really interesting. The entry is free. They have a nice cafe where you can get something to eat and drink. With a gift shop right beside it.
