Good exhibition about the byzantine period in a great building. Not too big so I would say that in 1 1/2 hour you can see it all. Building is very nice too!

Spent a happy Sunday afternoon here enjoying the wonderful exhibits. The "B" cafe is a real strength and we enjoyed tea & cake in a beautiful outdoor setting. This is the place for fans of the late Roman age.
