This is one of the best museums my husband and I have ever visited - its incredibly well thought through, with lots to see, read and do. We spent several hours at this museum so it is most definitely worth the entry price.

I already visited the museum. The lockers are small, not suitable for a carry on. But they can store bigger luggage at the ticketing counter by the coin lockers they have a special room for that. 😉
