“Well worth a visit”
Entry here was free, unless you wanted to visit their current special exhibit for which there was a small entry free. You are able to wander through numerous galleries, admiring the amazing art...
“stories and portraits fascinating.”
Well this was better than I expected. Not only are there the portraits and busts, but a fascinating story about each person. There was so much history that I was not aware of. So many brilliant...
I'm not an Art goer however I did enjoy reading some of the history and descriptions. I did enjoy the imagery I have to say strolling through the gallery was peaceful and entertaining.
