Absolutely loved this place. I love museums in general, but only a few exhibitions make me want to go through a second time. This was one of them (both for their permanent collection and the Labrynth special exhibition). I went through, smiling the whole way,...More

We took our girl scout troop here (ages 5-10) and they had a wonderful time. Even the adults enjoyed themselves.

Do you have to purchase tickets in advance for the museum or can you get them when you go to the museum that day?
