On the other hand we were very surprised by the freezing reception of the hostesses at the ticket office. Amiable as prison gates as they say, and authoritarian, we did not understand this lack of sympathy that did not put us in good conditions to visit. In a world where everything is more and more digitalised and connected, a little humanity can facilitate the fact of pushing the door of a Museum, and there they just wanted to leave.
Had every animal you can think of!!! Great lay out, very organised and looked great. Very cool activities but the sally ,I think, exhibition was closed due to construction but the other floors made up for it.
Nice variety of things to do. The top floor has the fine arts and the bottom floors have archaeology exhibits. There's a restaurant on the first floor. I liked the art exhibits best. They also had English descriptions of every room in the art sections, but not for the archaeology sections. Get a map/booklet when you first walk in to see where things are. It also lists "10 masterpieces" that you should see. On the first Sunday of the month, the entire museum is free to enter.
