  • A very interesting museum located in a beautiful building and area. There is a main exhibition and a rotating exhibition that changes periodically. If you're in the area or passing through, I'd recommend you take a look, it's definitely worth it.
  • Interesting visit and our guide was fantastic! The building is new but has an old school vibe. Really cool!
  • Excellent - especially the Shakespeare exhibition - but always brilliant
