  • Excellent museum. Very big. You have to have about 4 hours to see, without stopping a lot on each object. On Tuesdays it is free to enter from 4 pm. It is worth visiting.

  • Very education and beautifully displayed statues and artifacts from history. It's dim and quiet environment coupled with the benches is perfect to take notes, draw, and research in each exhibit. Admission price is high for regular adults but if you want learn about artistic past then it's definitely worth it. Been here twice already.
  • Really great museum. And the best is their Art Parties. Always good music, good themes and good tours. My tour guide was fantastic, the Men of Steel Woman of Wonder exhibit was really exceptional. And at this Art Party they followed it up with a showing of Wonder Woman outside! Absolutely fantastic evening.
