  • The museum does not look so large, but trust me, there are many departments including one about archaeology which I liked. It is not permitted to photograph in the museum.

  • There is a lot to see here and a substantial amount of quality on display. The main down side is the total lack of routing, no logic...having to backtrack al the time and hope you are not missing a corridor or room. Yes, it is an old school museum, not using modern means of telling the stories, but that didn't bother me, as the amount of things BV to look at was exhausting. Definitely the type of museum to do section by section and not in one visit, unless if you are a tourist, like me.
