  • Not amazing but the exhibitions are well curated and designed.
  • awesome permanent show. very well curated and sharp.
  • Nice place to visit
  • Snazia sa a casto to vidno.
  • We were only in the adjoining Café (Berlinka), but that was just wonderful. It was very cozy, the operation friendly and excellent food (spinach lasagna and Ziegencammenbert). I never thought to find something tasty in a place. As well as food, also the cyclists with the Haugemachten is recommended for lemonade.
