  • Estas obligado a ir a este tipo de museos para que no te cuenten si esta bien o mal vale la pena recorrerlo y sacar tus propias conlcusiones. 
  • It is always suggested to keep an eye on the exhibitions being displayed as well as the up coming ones. Its program is always changing and renewing. 
  • Hermosa y muy interesante visita al museo. Les recomiendo lo recorran todo y tomen tiempo para ver y leer en cada uno de los temas que ahí se exponen.
