It's a very good museum. Not the best fine arts museum in the country by any means, but it's a great time.

Spent the morning and really enjoyed it. The museum guide suggested a series of highlights, which were excellent. The Monet selection is gorgeous, as were the paintings by Sargent. Really broad range of items - ancient Egypt right through the ages. Better than expected

It would take at least 4 days to truly appreciate this museum. It's like opening a Reference book on art and you discover that what is in the book is in the museum.
