This is a very classy place - great art work for a non-capital city and a good cafe as part of it. Right in the heart of the City Park, it means a good time is needed, but well worth it.

I arrived just in time for a wonderful tour, then stayed for hours. The three-story level museum is awesome. Wish I had had more time. I'd love to return to visit the Sculpture gardens.
