“Escher”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

We went just for the Escher exhibition and were amazed at the rest of this museum. Fascinating for all ages and cultures. A lot of thought has gone into the presentation of each gallery such as lighting and layout. Floor staff very welcoming, helpful and bi-lingual.

“Magnificent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

What a mag-ni-fi-cent museum! It's super inter-active, fully social-media connected (scan your face onto a beautiful African tribal hairdo and send it off or send e-cards at your heart's content :). You can lie on a bunch of lush pillows watching and listening (get the "audio tour" [Eur 2,00] otherwise you can't follow it)! to the story of Layla & Majnu which is being screened above (!) your head. Just for a while you can "be" a member of the Dogon tribe in Mali and, quite literally, sit for a while in their (almost life size) village. Alterntively you may roam the (almost life size) streets of Manilla. It that doesn't do it for you you ;) may visit a tribal tent or play the juxbox in the Mexican cafe. The restaurant (also) offers various Indian, Surinam, Turkish etc. dishes/drinks; lovely to try and not too expensive. Last but not least the building itself; it is beautiful!
