  • The current exhibition of photos from the refugee crisis of 2015 is definitely worth a visit. The museum is located in an old building on the big pier by the seafront. Not difficult to find. 
  • As I already wrote about the neighboring Museum, time you all came to walk to the port (and it should be made obligatory), and go to the Museum of photography still stands. Like all museums, he, too, is housed in a former hangar warehouse. And very interestingly designed and made. Recommend!
