  • Take tons of time! Such a beautiful museum with tons to see. For young children (10 or under) the toy museum is a must see. They have free tours every two hours to show the highlights of the museum as well. Highly recommend. I feel like you would need a week to see everything!
  • What a rich and diverse collection of antiques!! The jewelry from back then is so extensively laid out 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼 The fabric industry produced such quality clothes.. What a wonderful surprise !! The paintings, sculptures, clothes, music instruments from back then... It just took me through a journey to some other place... I would visit this place again.... 😅 Highly recommended to museum lovers.
