The collection has been wonderfully curated. The number and variety of ancient artifacts are a marvel, as are the quality of the sculptures and paintings. Beautiful building with space to move and spots to stop and appreciate. Entrance fee is more than reasonable.

It's a lot larger than you would think, with a ton of Roman artifacts as well as items from the Neolithic era. Well worth the visit. Free audio tour as well! I think it was 3 euros eah ot get in.
