When approaching the woman manning the reception if we needed to buy entrance tickets, she retorted that we were already in the museum. When I asked if I could rent the audio guide, she replied that it wouldn't be of much help. Not a warm...More

The museum is a nice place to visit if you want to learn about the local history, art and customs. We visited on a Sunday. It was more crowded than usual, but still relaxed and enjoyable. A big bonus is the air conditioning!
