So nice museum. Small, thought would be bigger, incredibly not much to see. Also one of the floors are being updated. Restaurant closed on wknds which makes visit even more boring.

Visited one afternoon while on a work trip, and was quite impressed with much of the artwork they had displayed. The collection was varied, the staff was kind, and we enjoyed touring the place for about an hour.
