  • The building is quite big but you can visit the museum in about one hour. There are several things to see and the visit is interesting (there are also very nice paintings).

  • Fist of all, beautifull architecture of the building, inside the building, interior design the entrance garden! The expositions are nicely described, and there is a lot of space in the rooms to see them, and to reflect. They have kids corner, lock rooms and easy access with lifts for everyone. I liked a lot the contrast between colourful geometric entrance and the traditional elegant style of the museum.
  • unexpectedly excellent museum with an impressive archaeological collection. sculpture and paintings are nice too. 19th and early 20th century represented mainly, a lot of bearded men and a lot of very dramatic paintings in which seminude old men (and much younger seminude women) are put to the sword. Some very good pieces, also from older epochs. definitely worth a visit, I could spend another afternoon there.
