  • An incredible collection is presented systematically to archaeological complexes. You can do, is of interest only to specialists. Although I'm a professional, I me after a short time due to the profusion of overwhelmed felt. In between are top pieces, but they perish almost before loud Übergenauigkeit. And then the creepy, Loveless State Museum: ungeputzte showcases with dead insects, whole tracts lacks lighting, others are somehow in editing, others completely blocked. No wardrobe. The basement vollgerümpelt. My goodness, what a lethargy, what a lack. And in a world heritage site!
