  • Nice museum where young and old can have fun. Collection is inviting display. A wide variety of objects from all parts of the world. Personally, I liked the number of objects a bit on the poor side. For the youth are there in each Hall questionnaires available that lets you effortlessly through the collection go. Good addition are the interactive touch screens on which many additional information is provided.

  • This is the type of museum that is best visited a little bit at a time and return multiple times. If attempting to see it all at once, one can quickly become overwhelmed.

  • Great museum, very interesting collections about anthropology, the way natives live and the tools they used. Really enjoyed the special collection about buddhism! Also video material and interactive walls. The museum is nicely decorated and a pleasure for the eye!
  • While I am not the type to visit musea, this is one of those musea you have to visit once.
  • Nice museum with nice collection and different expositions . It's an interesting museum about different cultures.
  • Not the biggest museum, but you can still spend hours in there. Really interesting exhibits about cultures from all over the world.
  • Amazingly organised, especially for small kid's activities.
