  • The building is beautiful itself and when I visited it was super quiet so the museum didn’t feel hectic. Really interesting temporary exhibits and photography displays as well as a nice cafe/ restaurant attached!
  • Impressive building but a decidedly unimpressive anthropology museum. very little exhibit space, and much of the exhibits seem to be aimed at children rather than worldly adults. Definitely a pass on your museum tour.
