  • Beautiful building. Not really my thing but husband enjoyed it. Nice bar. 3 euro entrance, very good value.
  • Museum is quite big and has many exhibits. One of the best parts of the exhibition is its photo collection, which is available to watch on one of many interactive boards. However, english description can be found in only one or two rooms. Moreover some of the protectors where not set properly during our visit. With student discount one ticket costs 1.50€.
