  • A really well designed museum, especially for kids. The main docent was clearly very passionate about the work and gave a very detailed description of each piece. This museum would be a great place to take kids especially, because there is an interactive component (you get to print using copies of several hundred year old printing presses!). The museum is also much larger than it seems at first, but the second floor is probably the most interesting so don't skip it!
