I only had time for a 1-hour visit, which was long enough for me to leisurely walk around the exhibits and take lots of quick photos but not enough time for me to spend much time admiring the pieces in person. This museum is housed...More

You can visit the two facing facilities in under an hour - especially liked the Etruscan, Greek and Roman pottery and jewelry.

Newly opened, this museum devoted to Egyptian art, unlike the collection at the Louvre in Paris, gives an underwhelming overview of ancient Egyptian art and its influence on other ancient civilizations. The entrance to the museum gives one a lovely sensation of entering a sacred...More
