Must see Van Gogh paintings located here - Starry Night. Also some Picasso paintings here. There is an exhibit where the art is made of bottle caps which was very interesting.

Yes. Buy tickets in advance and strategically see areas of interest. It’s a huge place and will be very crowded during that time.
