  • There genuinely are no words to describe some of the pieces in here. Four thousand years of history has done nothing to dampen the majesty of some of the pieces. A little part of me does wonder about the misappropriation of another culture's historical legacy and whether there pieces really belong thousands of km from where they were brought forth but that aside this place is an absolute must see!
  • Museum is fantastic. But don't be fooled when reading the website. "Stay as long as you like" = until 6pm when we kick you out but are happy to sell you a full price 5pm time ticket. Please remove that line from your website. I wouldn't have booked that slot had I known.
