The museum is a visual feast with its colorful and rich collection from all the worth. I would definitely take a second chance to visit the museum again 👌👌💜
One of the best museums. Don't let the size of the building deceive you. You will spend hours in it and they have the greatest chess pieces and boards in there from all over the world. It's fantastic. They even have one with pieces of Batman and the characters of the comic.
