It is always a good idea to check the Sursock museum! The architecture is beautiful and heritage is there! The restaurant is nice, suitable for families with kids. It has good food and a lovely ambiance. Check it out!

Not to miss, collection is admirable, staff is friendly and knowledgeable, and you have a brunch at garden and mentally digest the exhibit.

The museum is located in a beautiful building. There is no entrance fee (they accept donations) and the exhibitions are nicely presented. They have a few modern paintings upstairs which were interesting to me. However, the museum is quite small.

We did not eat at the museum. However, if you're looking for a great breakfast, I'd suggest Le Cafe Sursock which is about a half block away. The traditional breakfast is enough to share for two and was reasonably priced at... More
