Better a really literate one so you can receive a better explanation of what are you seeing other wise there is a lack of information, anyway the exposure is great I loved many of the crafts exposed. A museum this big should have some recorded guidance so you can enjoy it better. I really liked pottery and new painting artists.

Admission is free if you present your passport or... More
