This museum is large and interesting, but a bit dry; we have enjoyed other museums more; however it is worth a visit.

After reading reviews our expectations were low, but we were delighted to have a special viewing arranged of the nativity scenes when told the exhibit was closed. Staff were friendly and helpful and there was enough translated to appreciate the museum. We recommend!!
