  • This is an amazing building in a beautiful location. The standing collection is Spanish, high quality. Why not a standing Japanese collection? A great temporary exhibition was contemporary Japanese.

Walk through it within an hour. The public gallery was really crowded and very boring. Except for the bigger Japanese drawings, which were impressive. Staff was extremely friendly!
