This gem of a museum hosts works from artists such as Rodin and VanGogh, as well as contemporary artists. We loved the mosaics retrieved from Turkey.

Museums are always a great place to visit. You can easily lose yourself in history. When finished you come out with knowledge yo didn't have going in. Take your time and explore all the rooms
