  • Well laid out and kept in good condition. Nice and quiet too.
  • If you have a free time in the city and don't know what to do, this is a cool location where you can find interesting stuff and educat yourself a bit. Around the museum you can find a park with really good view so if you feel tired of the museum you can walk around in the park.
