  • it would be great to live close by and walk in for the changing exhibits. Lots to see in each room. Just need a pair of young feet.

  • We reached there late, just 1 hour before closing time so was not able to see much thing. The Musuem people asked us to leave by 4 45 itself. I suggest if you are planning go to the Musuem be try to have enough time. Where we went it was looking good and they have maintained it well.
  • Huge! We didn't have time to see everything, will definitely come again! Great exhibitions in international standards! The place is like a maze, we got totally lost, they could use some signs and better maps
