Got to see sunflowers by the master. Impressive. There was lots to see and check out for free. There was also an exhibition you could pay for but we decided not to.

Map given at information desk guides you to popular pieces but we could see most paintings in about 2 hours. Flow of the museum presented paintings in chronological order.

I'm no great art lover, but walking around the National Gallery, I could be transformed. There are examples of great art over 500 years. Free to enter, this is worth a few hours getting culture
