  • For the first time after years again visited the World museum with the exhibition Powermask at this time. I am pleasantly surprised with the beautiful d├ęcor of the building, everything looks so and is also in a beautiful way with the times. So there are small tv screens added to the exhibitions, but this does not take the upper hand. Also the different ways of presentation are interesting, some articles hang on the wall, there are display cases but there are also real-life mannequins dressed up that natural poses (leaning against a wall, or the display case are just people!). In addition to this exhibition you've also got a permanent collection including a Tibetan Temple preparation, making it just seems like you have a whole different building step. Quite impressive! Fun fact is also that the Dalai Lama has visited this in 2004. The only downside I find the maze-like of the building, you do not know exactly whether you've already seen and some doors must be opened as an emergency door, giving you the idea to do something what should not. the route would so something clearer but that may come t because the small spaces spread over several floors.

  • Definitely following the less is more philosophy this great museum has a very nice, well presented collection. Simply one of the best I have seen this year. Be careful with your visit times though as it can get crowded.
  • A large and surprising museum separating into various cultural exhibitions. Yet it lacks of English introduction.
  • Great museum. Regularly changing exhibitions.
  • What an experience. And what a privilege that we could enjoy our lunch in their final week..... I do hope the chef will continue in another venue
  • Nice museum on all parts of the world.
