  • Major reconstruction going on till summer 2017. Not worth visiting before, even it is free
  • It's free & big. For every museum there's a water refill FOC. I wish i had spent more here but we were rushing to the next destination as it was 7pm.
  • Wow!It's very wonderful
  • Worth to visit. Good exposition and friendly staff.
  • If you are interested in history, it's the best place to go.
