  • We haven't visited the actual museum, but the gardens are really nice if you like modern gardens. There is an old graveyard with a very modern fountain/waterfall next to it, which we really liked. The gardens also host the "Garden Room", which is home to a great lunchroom/coffee spot (Good day deli)
  • Perfect place to relax and feel good! The Museum is very interesting! I came with my wife and spent our afternoon inside! The guides are very nice too! I recommend a lot!!!
