  • Not the best museum for tourists: -Some signs weren’t translated in English -The signs that were in English were very hard to read, the sentences didn’t get to the main point and very boringly formulated. So for me and my friend it was mostly looking at pretty things instead of learning something. We went on a national holiday so the entry tickets were free which was nice!
  • Definitely buy tickets in advance to avoid the line. Only two desks so the line goes on forever. The museum itself is cute, there are some really cool exhibitions but it's really small compared to most national museums which was surprising for me.
