  • Beautiful place! The have an elegant cafe inside to enjoy some cafe or lunch after or before your visit. It's located inside of a park so plenty of space to walk and share with family or friends. There is a free garden as well if you can afford the entrance fee of the main museum you can go to the gardens the have sculptures all around and it's well kept. Wonderful!
  • The museum was clean and quite! Tour took no more than 2 hours. There were 3 levels of rooms. The bathroom was clean. The outside sculpture walk through was beautiful. Honestly, it was a much better experience walking through the outside portion.
