The museum was closed for refurbishment, but the cafe is still very pleasant. The menu included sweet and savoury options, and there is a car park and a view across an artificial lake. Some way from the centre, but only a short tram ride.

Good selection of art and artefacts from eastern Asian countries and interesting exhibitions. Entry a bit pricey, if you're only generally interested in the topic.
