“Cool and different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

This museum is an example of how modern museums should look, in my opinion. There are sound effects, they play with colour and everywhere there are place you can look and learn something.
I love how they pick the stories of a group of people with mental disorders to show you how they think and see life.
The last room you enter is an explanation of how mental illness is treated by society through the years, really interesting.

“Very nice old building, food and experience somewhat average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

On the plus side:
* beautiful old building, terrace is quiet and with a nice view
* fresh ingredients for food and tasty beers you'll never find again from small micro breweries
* prices ok. Not too expensive.

On the neutral and minus:
* not a terribly exciting interior or very comfy chairs
* staff ok but not too over friendly. Did not feel like a real guest.
