  • To the peoples museum with 2 children of 8 and 5. Children loved it great especially piece about Asia. The treasure hunt, they have not done so because they are not fun. For the rest it was a lot of fun.

  • We were surprised by the huge collection, which with audio and photos on a pleasant way supported. The rooms are spacious and the doors will automatically open for wheelchair user. We have walked around with a lot of fun in this great museum. In the museum café has one fairly normal prices. Highly recommended for people, who want to delve into alien art and use it.

  • This museum was on our To Do list for Lead, but is still better than already expected. The layout of the museum is quite fun addressed, where Division by continents was created. The explanation that was made available via touch-screens was of unprecedented quality, we have already visited many museums, but this is the top class. Extra fun is that you can get a small lunch snack, such as a ball of soup of the day and all the tasty sandwiches., to reasonable prices. We have a thick spent three hours and no second us bored. Nice!

  • 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.
