Near metro station. Geology exhibition particularly good, the photo emitting stones particularly interesting. Ticket system odd.

Nice city museum featuring a limited number of famous artists and lots of regional landscapes and portraits. Worth a visit, especially when paired with one of the other three museums that share a common ticket for admission.
