Not easy to find, as there are many museums. Requires you to find an overview map found on the outskirts of the large courtyard. Lighting and the preparation of the various effects is brilliant. You can hire a digital guide, which works well, where you can plot many of the effects and hear the background thereof, the rental price is 5 euros per person, 2 people can share a guide.

This is a MUST for anyone visiting the city! Exquisite exhibit! WOW!

The exhibit simply WOWED us! There was so much history and beauty all wrapped into one. We enjoyed the experience thoroughly and would have been very disappointed if we had not experienced this tour. We think this is a must for anyone visiting the city...plus...throughout other exhibits and tours in the city, many references relate back to what we saw and learned on this tour - having done this early in our stay added to the experience of our other excursions. KUDOS - job well done - and amazing exhibit! WE LOVED IT!

Es gab viel zu sehn und auch manch Interessantes zu hören. Wir haben mit Audioguides zu vielen verschiedenen Ausstellungsstücken Informationen erhalten können. Jedoch waren die Aussagen der Audioguides seeeehr schwerlastig. Es wurde viel zu viel über einzelne kleine Verzierungen, welche auf den Ausstellungsmodellen waren erklärt. Es wäre interessanter gewesen mehr über die Personen die dies trugen zu erfahren und nicht über die Details wieso und weshalb dieses Muster oder Tier oder was auch immer, gewählt wurde.
