“absolutely unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

there is really no way to describe this delight. It is a bit mysterious to find and understand - no tourist signs and directions but as we meandered through the gothic halls we found a teensy gift shop with someone who could explain the way to see the rooms. As it turned out we were too late for a tour so we only saw the open rooms on floor three. It was just enough to appreciate the detail required to create these little shrines to cultures of the world.

“Fantastic architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I can't believe this exists right in the city. This building is the kind of thing we travel internationally hoping to see. Climb the stairs and checkout the view!
