All the paintings in the National Museum arte moved to the new National Museum. The new museum is supposed to open in 2020, in the meantime the old museum for some incredible reason is closed!

ムンクの叫びを観に行きましたが、すでに閉館していました。2020年に再開発地区に移転です。残念ですが、待ちましょう。I went to see Munch's cry, but it was already closed. It is relocated to the redevelopment area in 2020. Sorry, but let's wait.

A very small museum with a very big ego. No Prado, Louvre or Hermitage I've visited have such rules and rude personnel. Mind it, if your bag is a centemeter over the size of A4, even though it is under the same size on the...More
