There’s something for everyone here - the collection ranges from ancient to modern in the different exhibitions. Galleries were thoughtfully arranged, and overall a pleasant visit.

I expected a first class art museum, but was terribly disappointed. No classics or old masters. Just since sculpture, pottery etc. Modern art was disappointing as well. Additionally, it was sad to see the pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel bias, which is almost unbelievable after Germany perpetrated...More
