  • Superbly interactive museum. Truly a wonderful experience. We easily spent 2 hours in there and that was without seeing the special exhibition that was closed for refurbishment. Make sure you also...

  • Visiting from America - I absolutely loved this museum. The staff are extremely friendly, helpful, and informative. There are different areas of museum property you can view, and the main exhibit is admission time spaced which is great for people traffic flow. Descending into the first part of the main exhibit, I got chills (not because it's cold). You are dropped directly into an archeological dig site. The flow of cultural information throughout the main exhibit is presented in chronological order, which I felt made for a very engaging experience. I felt like I wanted to keep reading, keep moving forward, keep discovering what happens next (as if I was reading a novel). I read every single exhibit placard (English translation was grammatically correct & available on every placard). Display cases where minimally filled, which was enjoyable because I was able to focus on the relevance of that particular object. I do wish the lighting throughout was turned up just a little bit, but I can also understand the vision of having low lighting to illustrate the time in history this exhibit is representing. Not all of the audio guide plug ins worked for me. I did appreciate the way you can sort of customize the category of history you most want to learn about, with the interactive ticket to display screens. And I do wish the gift shop had more selection specific to the exhibit. I wasn't informed that part of the museum was closed prior to my entering the exhibit, but they do provide you with a QR code that links you to the rest of the exhibit information. It took me two hours (because I was reading everything), and I didn't view the museum in it's entirety. 9.5 out of 10!
  • Am glad that they are revamping the exhibits. Only some of the exhibits are available now and they reduced the ticket prices by 7euro to 9Euro. Although, the museum tried to use "technology" and interactive learning, I am not v impressed. At the end of the day, a good museum must be able to connect with the visitors emotionally and intellectually. Mere presentations of facts and data serve little purpose. But I see the museum potential but they should keep a close eye on costs and ticket prices too.
