  • I was stunned. The museum is beautiful outside and inside. Great collections (with Dali's Christ on the Cross on display) and lots to see and experience. It's completely free, so make sure to go! On Sunday there is an organ recital around noon, which was also cool to see and hear.
  • Small but varied art gallery. A really eclectic mix of things. The daily organ playing, the broad range of art and exhibits make this a really enjoyable place to visit. There are so many little things to see, but unlike some museums, it’s not overpowering. A special mention should go to the cafe with stunning biscuits and short bread. The staff were very polite.
