  • Visiting from America - I absolutely loved this museum. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and informative. There are different areas of museum property you can view, and the main exhibit is admission time spaced which is great for people traffic flow. Descending into the first part of the main exhibit, I got chills (not because it's cold). You are dropped directly into an archeological dig site. The flow of cultural information throughout the main exhibit is presented in chronological order, which I felt made for a very engaging experience. I felt like I wanted to keep reading, keep moving forward, keep discovering what happens next (as if I was reading a novel). I read every single exhibit placard (English translation was grammatically correct & available on every placard). Display cases where minimally filled, which was enjoyable because I was able to focus on the relevance of that particular object. I do wish the lighting throughout was turned up just a little bit, but I can also understand the vision of having low lighting to illustrate the time in history this exhibit is representing. Not all of the audio guide plug ins worked for me. I did appreciate the way you can sort of customize the category of history you most want to learn about, with the interactive ticket to display screens. And I do wish the gift shop had more selection specific to the exhibit. I wasn't informed that part of the museum was closed prior to my entering the exhibit, but they do provide you with a QR code that links you to the rest of the exhibit information. It took me two hours (because I was reading everything), and I didn't view the museum in it's entirety. 9.5 out of 10!
  • A wonderful museum, for all the family. And good value. Great that it also has English translation and QR codes for extra explanation. I had a great time looking at all the exhibits and all the staff were so helpful and friendly. Thanks for a lovely time.
