What a place! You are first struck by the majestic nature of the building itself, but also it’s twin (the arts museum) which sits adjacent. An architectural site to behold. You enter the museum and it is equally as impressive. The vastness of this area,...More

So much to see here. You have to select. I chose rocks and ammonites but passed by many other exhibits. The 30,000 year old Venus - tiny statue worth a look. Nice coffee bar.

The inside of this building is worth visiting in its own rights. We found the exhibits displayed in mainly glass cases rather old fashioned and not interactive.
