  • There are many things to see! I was impressed by the combination of old and new and their efforts to make children not bored. And the staffs are really kind. For me, it was almost perfect but I was wondering if they should rely on leaflet for providing information
  • Museum exhibits very modern and contemporary pieces of art and design in a city palace of 18th century. All the exhibitions look very good.
