It's not a big museum (it will probably take one or two hours at most to see the whole museum), but their collections are pretty amazing for a museum of their size. Their permanent collection has a pretty impressive amount of Renaissance and medieval art....More

Part of museum was closed for renovation, so felt like I got less than what I paid for. There was one exhibit of famous people who died early in life. A book was available that told you interesting facts about each.
