  • It's a well recommended museum, not much to see to me, but still. The garden/park you can see all around it is straight gorgeous though, I would visit it again 100/100!
  • Incredibly neat museum! Tons of interesting information about culture, climate, geology, history, you name it! Exhibits were all fascinating and well put together. Staff is very friendly and the gift shop was nice. The architecture is absolutely top-notch too. If you're in the area, this is a must-see
