Since I enjoy ancient coins, this was an excellent museum to visit. The history of world coins and medals is facinating and educational. The displays in each room are well organized. The audio guide, which is included in the very low entrance fee, is helpful. The museum was not overly crowded, and you can take your time and move from display to display at your own pace. The Greek and Roman coin displays are most interesting. I did have an incident with one of the museum staff. I briefly touched the outside of a display case. She rushed over to tell me not to touch it. In the same room was a tour guide from the museum with four guests. Besides talking loudly to the point I could not even hear my audio, the guide and her guests were constantly touching and leaning on the display cases. When I asked the staff member for an explanation as to why her tour guide and guests were not told not to touch the display, she went on the lengthy discussion about sensors and alarms and not having enough money to maintain the system. Obviously not answering my question. This was petty. I touched the outside of the display so briefly, I did not even remember doing it. The staff member must have been bored and needed to show some authority. Clearly a double standard of rule enforcement at this museum. Regardless of the overzealous staff member, this is a very good museum to visit.
