Small but lovely museum, with a genuinely impressive collection of art, especially its Impressionist collection. It's located at Somerset House, and is a short walk from the Tube.

'The Bar at the Folie Bergeres' by Manet and Renoir's 'La Loge' are worth the trip alone. A small but choice selection of great art, with particular emphasis on the Impressionists.
