  • This museum is incredibly well curated!! I would totally bring my kids here if I had any, every room contains fun activities to keep them occupied and help them learn to love art. Not to mention the amount of different art they had- a person can spend several hours here and not get bored! They have several different styles on display, so there is definitely something here for everyone. This was a really great experience!
  • What a museum! I visited when it opened for just one month. The building is new and well designed allowing people to have a choice of what to see. There is so many artifacts there from all eras, each providing plenty of description. I really enjoyed the digital effects some of the rooms have, what a good use of technology. There are three floors with a tremendous amount of content, my advice is to allocate your entire afternoon to visit here.
