  • I myself was there once during the exhibition of the Maoris, who could come back one more time. It was a pity so few of these beautiful people can be seen in the museum. Springs was now the subject, and the very last day that Eduardo de Indian from Mexico did his story in the museum. Our daughter has enjoyed his stories and also of the workshop Dreamcatcher. We are definitely 3 hours within, there is so much to see and discover for kids and adults. Very much enjoyed!

  • 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.
