Incredibly wide offering of archaeology, medieval art, paintings from all relevant centuries. Could easily spend the entire day if the human body and brain could bare it. My favorite sections are 19th century painting with an incredible collection of impressionist artists and the Egyptian collection....More

This is one of those museums that really requires more than one day. If you like a whirlwind tour, you can rush through all the exhibits, but it is best experienced over time. Take the day and pick one or two exhibits. Enjoy them. Read...More

Too much for one day but if one is selective it makes for an incredible visit. Amazing exhibitions and great explanations. Go before the crowds and enjoy at ease.

Don't miss the Han Chinese Exhibition while you are there. That is amazing. Also, the Costume department has put together an interesting exhibition of modern clothing which you should see. As way of the other galleries... More

I don't know. You can pay when you get there. It is donations. You can pay a penny if you want. The food is overpriced.
