This smaller museum has one of the countries finest Pre-Raphaelites painting collections: breathtaking. Add the countries finest illustrators , a fine contemporary collection, regular shows and a good café. Hard to beat. Discounts for seniors and students. Free on sight parking, A must see attraction.
