Having visited many museums, I've gotten a bit fatigued with them. However, this one was definitely worth the visit. The visit begins with the crypts which in itself is an interesting experience.

this is an incredibly well designed and curated museum where history is intertwined with lovingly restored art. you start in the Roman ruins below and climb slowly but not through ages, instead through mediums. architecture, sculpture, paintings, relics, tiles, textiles, all perfectly balanced, dramatically displayed, and with much focus on the artists and stories. one of the best museum experiences in memory.
