Stunning building. Spent a few hours here and really enjoyed it. Visit the gift shop. Afterward walk around to the cafe overlooking the bay and enjoy a drink or snack or both!

“good way to spend a couple of hours”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The internal architecture is stunning. The displays are well laid out but overall quite small compared to others museums in Europe. Allow 2 hours.
