I visited this museum in 2013 and it was an overwhelming experience of how a space can affect your experience of a subject. The manner in which the museum is integrated into the former church not only highlights the new architecture but brings out the old. It felt serene and beautiful and religious. The architecture so poetically provides a space to the Christian art. I frequently remember this museum as one of the most beautiful spaces I have ever been.
