We went here on the metro but only to find that it has been closed for renovation since April and reopens on 20th October 2018. The restaurant/cafe was open but you could not see a lot.

You all must go to this museum, it is amazing. The architecture and statues are beautiful, however there is no censoring names which could be offensive, however this adds to the statues.

The swimming pool in art-deco style was stunning. The art collection was dissapointing. It was a mix of everything and nothing. There was not much to see and you could finish this museum in an hour. There are parking facilities nearby.

Don't miss this gem of a museum. The building and layout are beautiful in themselves, and the art is fabulous. A collection of so many different types of art you're sure to be amazed.

We were refused entry because we had bags (not huge suitcases, just small backpacks). Bags were not allowed in the Museum and there was no cloakroom where they could be left. Nobody cared. ‘Maybe you could go somewhere else and leave your bags and then...More

Full price is 5.5Euro but there are concessions. Search for their web site for more details. You'll need to be quick as the museum is closing from 2nd April to 20th Oct for renovations.
