Right in the centre set in a nice park setting. A south wing and north wing to visit. One with 1800 art and the other with 1900 art.

The wing of the old Masters had extra built in walls to be able to show more paintings. The intention was good and we certainly saw a few more lovely pieces but the overall effect is not the best one. Without the freedom to admire...More
