You can visit the two facing facilities in under an hour - especially liked the Etruscan, Greek and Roman pottery and jewelry.

Egyptian Art Museum probably has more artifacts than in Egypt. Yes, I have been to world's top museums including New York Metro, Lourve and they only have a section of Egyptian arts. Here in Germany, it is highly specialized and you have many separate museums...More
