It's really cold today and sleeting so we're pursuing indoor activities. Fortunately the are lots of museums and galleries to visit. First we visited the National Art Centre which is a beautiful purpose designed building by Japanese architect Kisho Kurokawa We skipped the main exhibitions from the Louvre in favour of an exhibition by Japanese artists (something like the RA summer exhibition).
