No major highlights. One Jan Steen and a Ruebens. Unknown Dutch artist which are quite good but all in all just an average museum. Shame there is no audio guide. Would have made all the difference. Very heavy in religious art

The two portraits by Cranach (der Alter) are spinetinglers, also the altarpiece finished by his son (if not quite up there with the Weimar Stadtkirche Retabel). Hals's 'Mulatto' hardly needs recommendation. There are vast rooms of conceptual crap, but they are easily avoided; more problematic,...More

This museum has a ton of different styles of art. I spent around two hours inside but I could have stayed longer. I believe there are some exhibits that are changed periodically so there is always more to see.
