  • Pouco conteúdo
  • Ai eu ja fui pra esse lugar e Exelente
  • bom museu
  • Excelente lugar.
  • Museu ultrapassado com textos enviesados e uma exposição que não conta uma história e não apresenta uma experiência ao visitante. Caro (16 meia, 8 inteira durante a semana) mas aos domingos é grátis a entrada).
