  • Only had two hours before closing so we decided to concentrate on the Einstein exhibit. My companion reads every word at every station so we barely finished the entire exhibit before closing...

  • This museum is honestly very well designed and explained. Very interesting all the different exhibitions. Would have liked more time to enjoy it a bit more
  • At the moment there is an exhibition on the samurais. I really recommend to come for when it's on as its sensational! I also recommend to come for the rest of the exhibition. Their collections are superb.
