This is the most unique layout for a museum, with its little passages, rooms, levels and seating areas. The art was varied and had a lot of variety. I loved the pottery in particular.

This museum is not small about 15 collection rooms and courtyards. There are always exhibishion as well. But depending on your schedule, 1 hour or 2 hours will be walking through all collection rooms.
