  • 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.
