I found it relaxing to stop here, after walking trough the city. It was peacefull and the air was not too hot inside. There was some interesting art work reflecting the countrys history. The museum seemed not so well kept, which is a shame.

Museum provided an interesting look into what they would consider "fine art". Entered on a very warm and humid day anticipating a "fine art museum" that protected their artwork (and visitors) with air conditioning. It's an open air museum and to be honest the architecture...More

This fabulous and beautiful building is set in a suburb which had rubbish and human feaces on the street the day we visited. However, the museum itself is a treasure trove of eclectic pottery, art and sculptures. The infographic boards are good and the museum...More

I am not really an art lover, but I really loved this place. A great range of art, and the buildings, and their history, are simply stunning,

From seeing the art sold at the historic sites, we expected very little, but there are several artists of extraordinary talent here. Mostly from the past 100 years and using different medium, but some great surprises can be found.
