Added this to my itinerary only to go there and find its closed till 2019. However the signs and the website couldn't have been less clear. I wasn't the only one to make the mistake either. Very disappointed

We were interested in going to the museum and we're disappointed to find it now closed for some considerable time - it would have been helpful for the tourist office had advised us.
