  • It is a museum full of Greek and roman sculptures and divided in halls for worshiping, arts, war and hunting. each sculpture has a number with audio in English/German to know more about it. if you want just to see the halls and take some photos would take only 45 min to explore. recommended to go on Sunday as the entry fee is 1 euro.
  • Omg it's awesome place for sculpture. Especially, the route for exhibition is very clear and no confused! And the material is so nice!
