  • I'm not a art lover and wasn't expecting to enjoy the Picasso exposition so much. I loved how they put part of his life in the exposition. I enjoyed the tour, totally worth it.
  • This place is larger than it seems. I went early in the morning and had a great time, excellent exhibits and architecture. There is a skating rink near by so you can have a pretty fun day in the area during winter.
