Excellent collection of Roden
One of the nicest museums I've ever been to. Its Size is compact,-rather small, than big. But It is convenient for tourists. If you come to 10 am (to the opening), then just to 12.30 (to the closing of the museum for lunch) you can get acquainted with all three floors of the exposition. Four times a year on the ground floor there are temporary exhibitions, and two storey floors are permanently given to the permanent exposition of the museum, which is fully worthy of the attention of art lovers. The Second floor reflects the real development of artistic art from 1850 to 1900 from Romanticism to Impressionism and post-impressionism to symbolism.
