I love the fact that London museums are free! I spent a couple of hours here and strategically mapped out my visit first. One can use the computer system from the cafe area on the lower level to choose particular artists or paintings you want to see, and then print out a map of those. I was very excited to find the Jan Van Eyck paintings and the Manets, as well as the Dvoraks and just go directly to them. After I left the museum, it was great to soak in some of the ambience of Trafalgar Square, with the street musicians, artists and young people in love.
