This is without the exaggeration the best museum I've ever seen. Never before has a museum managed to show something so cripplingly boring as ancient and oriental art and paintings (I'm sorry) in such a beautiful and intriguing manner. You will feel compelled to look at every single coin displayed. The collection is vast and beautifully preserved. A truly fine experience of art.
We went on a Sundays after 2 pm that the entrance in free and it was great! It has beautiful and unique pieces from different times an styles. Considering that it is a private collection it is impressive and worth a visit. When we came out l. Around 4:30, the line to enter was quite long. I recommend getting there between 2 and 3 pm for the free entrance.
