Some of the exhibitions were pretentious and contrived. There wasn’t a whole lot to do and nothing really held my interest.

It's a quirky museum with exhibitions that show objects in some relationship or concept, rather than chronologically, with differently themed temporary exhibitions. The entrance is free, you only pay for the seminars that take place (if they do). We visited the 3rd and 4th floor...More
