This museum is a little chaotic but amazing nonetheless. A great way to see the beautiful linkages between cultures while still celebrates their individual beauty.

It is difficult to explain everything you feel when you walk in, but a great appreciation for the time it took to put this collection together is certainly one of them. Lots of wow factors throughout the museum! A MUST DO on your list!
