While at the museum if you have any problem you can refer to the people working there. You might think you are dealing with human beings but don't be fooled. Those things are machines - not intelligent machines - the stupid ones.

Not a large collection but worthwhile if you are in the area. Great display from an important part of European history. The highlights are the bronze statues. Cheap tickets is a plus (£4).

It's opened from 9 to 3 every day except Mondays. Well of course you could spend hours and hours in there, but I'd suggest you should plan for a visit of at least 2 hours.
