“Great free exhibitions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

This museum is in a very interesting classic old building that looks like it was once a big old important factory. It is located a little from the centre but with a taxi it is no problem. There are loads of free exhibitions here and they are divided into different buildings within the factory walls.

the day we went there was just one exhibition and not much else which was disappointing. It was on Richard Blake and was interesting.

“So what if its free”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012 via mobile

Little to no english in this place, and mediocre presentations. Was a waste of 2 hours of my time. I suggest giving a peak if you are around, but be ready to leave..
