  • Went here to see the Stanley Kubrick exhibition which was very interesting. While there, we also had a look round the museum itself. There is quite a small display area on the top floor but, again, very interesting. The building itself is, as you might expect, beautifully designed. Note the wonderful sweeping ceilings and the wooden staircases up and around the central atrium. It does actually take a while to walk up to the top floor but there are lifts! Well worth a visit.
  • I came here to see one of their temporary exhibits, the Stanley Kubrick exhibit. But I really liked the museum. It is a small museum for sure, but they have some nice exhibits and displays. And it's free, so you can't beat the price (though the special exhibits, like the Kubrick one, does have an additional fee). The place is also very clean, the restrooms are nice, and the cafe has a decent selection of pastries and coffees. Very nice staff as well. Definitely recommend the place, especially if their temporary exhibit is a subject you enjoy. (Another shout-out for the Kubrick Exhibit... if you like cinema, then you will love the exhibit of one of the greatest masters of the art. Definitely go check it out before it ends!)
