Exhibitions range from the Old Masters to contemporary art with a focus on impressionism.

This museum has been stunningly reconstructed after being totally destroyed in the WWII. The reconstruction story is on display. There are permanent and changing exhibitions, look up what is on before visiting. Book on the internet because there are time slots, take audio guide.
