  • Beautiful museum. The architecture is absolutely beautiful here. The dark granite floors are stunning. The galleries are also very interesting and informing! I love coming here every now and again. The cafe is really nice too, fair prices and delicious! But my favorite thing here is the view of the city. Absolutely stunning.
  • The food was good the view was excellent but there was zero ambience! We went for the afternoon tea. If you are doing an afternoon tea which is fashioned after an English tea use a tablecloth put the cream and sugar on the table dress it up a bit. Creat some atmosphere this place had none, such a pity that there was no thought in the presentation.
