Each city we go to, we visit the art museum's and this one was particularly good. Pop art, impressionism, cubism and surrealism. The restaurant downstairs is really good and the musuem shop is great too.

Great collection of modern art, and beatiful views of the cathedral too. My kids aged 11, 9, 5 and 3 loved the kids activity room next to the pop art collection (and the sweets they got at the reception), but they didn't have the patience...More
