  • Ideal Outing to be vidited alone with friends or family for kids sections . U can stroll through the rooms see some art works , through time and across different countries. This hype new museum is Always full of beautiful surprises like the artistic exhibition at the moment. The outside structure is very creative and trending . Discounted prices are available check it on their website .
  • Only went in for the viewing gallery, but it's free and the view is great! Really chilled atmosphere, although it was a Monday. Probably be a little hell over the weekend. I'm sure the art and museum are also very good.
