This museum has an interesting and original architecture and displays several contemporary art installations. We toured the gallery with Yoko from the Museum hotel and the background provided extra interest. The outdoor terraces are a must see.

Not all the art was my cup of tea, but the architecture is gorgeous and worth a visit on its own. Make sure not to miss the oval room!
