“It "looked" nice...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2011

We managed to get to the entrance lobby in the museum. We peaked into the room behind and saw it covered with various historical works of art. It was definitely an appealing sight.

Unfortunately, the 3 staff members in the entrance did not understand the concept of "service" (public employees... surprise surprise). The man behind the ticket desk was chatting away on the phone (we're Greek so we know he was talking aimlessly). The two women on the other end of the room made gestures of bewilderment, but didn't actually walk over to sell us the tickets.

We left.
