It is huge so one can easily spend the Whole day here! Some of the Exhibitions are just temporarily. The Collection was very wide so I think everybody finds something of interest! I found the prices in the museum shop quite high.

Apparently this museum is undergoing works. There is no attempt at a meaningful display. It is random, scant and noisy. Do not waste your time and money.More
