So much too see! The museum shop and bookstores are also nice, I got a few art books from there. Now that there’s limited number of visitor per day, the museum is not as crowded. However, I still think the number should be limited to lower. It’s still difficult to see in some popular areas.

Excellent Museum. Kid friendly with a half hour where they get to go and draw and paint, as well as given paper so they can sketch the Paintings on the walls if they like. Great gift shop as well. To do the entire thing I estimate about 3-5 hours depending on if you are doing the audio guide and want to read every single blurb for each painting.

Large exhibition, very nice building and a lot of room to circulate around the paintings. However Two comments: the descriptions are written so small that you have to be 'on' the painting to read them and thus blocking the view of the other visitors. The second: many paintings have a poor light...

I've been here before, but I don't remember it as informative as this last trip on August 21. The exhibitions are very nice and well laid out. I really enjoyed my day here until I was told I couldn't take photos. I had asked a staff member on the ground floor if photos were allowed and he stated, yes, but please no flash, avoid getting up close to the art and avoid getting in the way of people. So when a different staff member, rudely came up to me on the second floor to state "No photos!", then walked away from me, I followed him to let him know that I had asked. There was more to this encounter, but the bottom line is that the museum needs to decide if photos are allowed or not so that staff on one floor don't state one answer and another answer on another floor. So when you visit, be prepared to get two answers. I did not take any photos after I was rudely told not to. However, on this same floor, in the same area, I saw many people taking photos after my encounter. The museum is definitely worth a visit.
