  • Check out the rest of the property if you have time, it's quite nice. English audio guide option available, great exhibits with several interactive elements. I'd say the content of a few of the exhibits is a bit heavy, but very educational. They also have a student discount.
  • A wonderful history on the Red Cross/ Red Crescent and the work they do. The audio tour that comes with entry is a wonderful way to experience the museum. Easy to reach by public transit as well.
