great pieces of art n history but cannot enjoy much because the staff were following,or i should say ”stalking” the visitors to see what they were doing. This thing never happened to me when visiting other great European museums.

This is a small museum that covers some of the local history. You can get through the entire building in about 90 minutes. English guides are available via a small walkie for 1 euro.
