Walked over after being told the nearby Archaeological Museum cost 50+ euros (we’re still scratching our heads). The art museum is affordable, amazing and huge. We spent a couple hours just in the early European church sections. Great exhibition carefully displayed. Then went to the...More

this museum is about average. i have seen better ones in other major cities. it is fairly large but the focus is too narrow to be worthwhile to mainstream people wanted to visit an art museum.
