  • Worth a visit. Small museum but the Money panels are incredible. Definitely take some time to sit on the benches and just really observe the paintings. Quite a lovely mix of art on the bottom floor that was a treat to see. Can be squeezed in between activities as it doesn't take long to visit.
  • The tickets were surprisingly cheap. The Monet exhibition was absolutely breathtaking, it felt like you were inside a painting. There were VR sets in the museum as well but the wait times were quite long, I recommend you to arrive early to reserve a spot. The other exhibitions were also noteworthy. Very well worth the time.
