This museum is mostly filled with native art from all over the world. They also have a lot of different exhibitions, even though I must admit it's really a taste-thing. On top of the museum is a really good restaurant, can highly recommend that.

A museum review is always a bit personal and therefore people might strongly disagree. I went to this museum for their exhibition about the samurai. The exhibition was awesome and well put together. The rest of the museum features alot of native art from all over the world which just isnt really my cup of tea. If you are interested... More

A Michelin starred restaurant on top of a museum. Very different. I was ill in the night and can only think the raw Kingfish starter didn't help

We have been visitors to this restaurants from the day it opened its doors and we have seen in grow in quality. Great food, grea wines and great view. The terras on the river front alone is worth a visit. Take enough time for the museum with its excellent collection before you take a seat and enjoy the food. Marianne

I visited the museum as part of a private group, however the museum is very accessible, easy to find and interesting to follow, either guided, or on your own. Many of the items on display are from private collections and depict Tibetan, Hindhi and religious artifacts, sculptures and paintings. Not to be missed.

I had diner before they received a Michelin star. A truly enjoyable meal, fine dining at its best. I also love the museum and the fact that the restaurant is situated inside (pity i could not visit the museum) is a plus.

The museum is worth a visit but unfortunately for me I got a day where it was there the director of the museum with is grandchildren that were running and screaming all over the place and because it was the director no one would say anything..a lack of respect in my opinion!
