  • Nice museum. Definitely it is a place which worth a visit. The location of this place is really great. There is a bus stop and a metro station located near this place. What is more, the architecture of this place is really magnificent. Also this building surrounded by a cute park zone where you can rest for a second and continue your journey.
  • Fantastic museum, with a great collection and in a very nice building. Three floors, plenty of space and lots of great pieces of art, a museum shop and a little café .. easy to spend a few hours. You can get audio guides, there's usually also something for kids and on Sundays it's only 1€ to get in (like for many of the museums in the area).
