The size of this venue and the quality of the exhibits inside the Museum are outstanding. What is odd, but understandable, is that you pay, as a visitor, for various elements separately - for example entry fee is one price, a fee to take photos is separate tickets for inside don't allow access to outside area exhibits which are a...
