Its is the second best mozaic museum in the world, and you understand why when you go! Important tip: there is a 3D video shown, but they say that 3D equipment is broken. Watch it in 2D! You need to ask for it!

It is one of the best Museums in Europe both as the rich history/content and the structure/way of communicating to the audience is superb!!! I felt that humanbeing is not going forward but backward after seeing the masterpices of the ancient times.
