  • The museum was closed when we tried to visit but the exterior of the building was very impressive and some of the external statues were very moving. Have to make sure to visit inside next time.  more »
  • We were last week and on Tuesday was closed, although according to the schedule provided in the door closed at 19 h. We call the ringer but nothing. The entrance was in the dark.

  • Really disappointing that this museum closes at 3 on Saturday and Sunday. Most the other museums were open later. I still hope to visit one day.  more »
