We WISH we had had much more time to browse this lovely museum. One section is a collection of their very finest works, and PLEASE try to find that wing if your time is short. The displays are world-class best.

The gallery is in a lovely locale and houses good local art. The cupola is very nice and we enjoyed the views from the outside walk you can take from there.

As we enjoy going round art galleries we were very pleased with what was on offer as there was so much to see and we particularly enjoyed seeing some beautiful Hungarian works of art. Nice cafe at the entrance though small.
