Didn't go in as they are in the middle of renovation and the areas I was interested in - ancient history and medieval are closed. Wish I had known before I did the walk there!

This museum is lodged in a large Brutalist style building and it feels airy and spacious. Within that, there were various mezzanine levels and lots of stairs. It accommodates the local archaeological finds. The most interesting artefacts by far in this museum were the Paleolithic...More
