    Amazing views from the top. The kids loved the art inside so long as we let them set the pace. It's a Summer 2015 Blue Star Museum.

    Lovely. Try the cafe on the roof. I had a toast and draught beer. After your tour buy an ice cream and seat on the green chairs outside the museum

    Buen museo pero en mi opinión está caro para lo que tiene (MoMA tiene precios más baratos y mejores exhibiciones) pero en general está interesante lo que tiene.

    Incredible collection in a huge new space. Start on the top floor and work your way down to more recent decades. Use the outdoor staircases for beautiful views along the way.

    I would advise to begin your your from the top to bottom. They are open late so don't worry about getting there early in the day. Go in a little bit later to enjoy the dawn.
