Went to the museum to learn one part was closed down in preparation for an upcoming exposition. Still the remaining pieces of art were worth the visit. A well balanced variety of modern and more classic, mostly paintings and such. Special tickets for students available.

The museum is well worth a visit both for the art deco interior and the permanent collection which hosts great works of French impressionists as well as a magnificent modigliano, among others.
