We had tickets for this show and we had to enter between 10 and 10.30am. I thought it was going to be quiet civilised, but they were letting in large groups of people too to buy tickets. I think they were just limiting the depth of people in front of each painting to about 8!!!

It was very crowded, and there were things that could have been done better (the standard height for hanging paintings probably could be raised a little when there are so many people trying to see them at the same time), but it was an amazing show. About 200 paintings from museums all over the world. Unlike most paintings, these paintings were every bit as good as the reproductions you see in books. Just fantastic.
It was on 2 floors. On one floor the floor actually squeaked. Hundreds of feet all squeaking … I secretly filmed the feet … if it works out I will put it on youtube and let you know..
