  • We really loved the paintings at the National Museum. They are very beautiful and self-explain about the history of the country.

  • Awesome in its size and beauty. As you enjoy the various galleries of fine art, don't forget to notice and appreciate the artwork of the building itself. Intricate wooden inlay flooring, chandeliers, cornice and mouldings, all combine to present a majesty that is missing in many modern constructions. We spent about 4 hours and only managed to peruse 2 floors of the museum. I'm looking forward to going back.
  • A great place to see some remarkable artworks of remarkable people. It is also great that there are easy-to-find benches whenever you feel tired for standing too long. Weekends can be too crowded, so visit before noon to avoid the queue. You can also visit from Tuesday to Fridays if you want lesser crowd
