    Возьмите аудио-гид!) с помощью него вы узнаете не только историю создания картины,но и ее смысл. Можно взять один на двоих :) есть одно но, рассказ будет не о всех экспонатах.

    My big brother melih's mummy gives an exhibition in there. She is a master painter. If you wanna see so many historical and very familiar paintings even from Van Gogh or etc you might be visited.

    worth the effort, it's overwhelming if you try to do it in a single day - leave the kids at home, or you'll be stressed out by junior trying to entertain himself by running and hollering in the halls
