    Inviting and relaxing, this museum rejuvenates your spirit by "feeding me your eyes." Come in on a rainy day and sketch the sculptures.

    Превосходное место окультуривания ...шедевры - Дали, Дега..из классиков великие Моне и Ван Гог. Лучше наполняться искусством в несколько заходов, так как музей огромный и можно платить сколько хош...

    World class art collection, expect crowds full of tourists. If you need, to take advantage of the "pay what you can" deal for cheap admission.

    "China: Through the Looking Glass" may be better than "Savage Beauty" & it pains me to say that - but this exhibition is RICHLY curated & expansive. Well done.
