  • A first class museum with multiple different collections and history presentations. Could spend many days here. Wish the cafetetia/coffee shop had better options .
  • Maybe our expectations were too high but aside from some beautiful furniture I didn't get excited. Winterthur has better examples and there were renovations everywhere. Signage was abysmal. I don't think I will return.
