It's a compact museum but with lots of interesting artifacts. The old wing is under reconstruction but still lots of interesting things to see in the new wing. The treasure room is amazing.

Yes the museum is kids friendly in terms of free spaces but if you mean "kids friendly" in terms of activity I think not. But the museum is really big and you can enjoy it.
