Located close to the main railway station (Haupbahnhof). It is a striking building on the outside and inside there are many artefacts to satisfy a curious mind. Near to St Georg it means there are many places to grab a refreshment before or after your...More

This is a great museum to visit as they have many different exhibits so everyone should find something they find interesting. Very cool building with beautiful spaces and nice staff. My highlight was the bookstore with many special and interesting books I'd never seen before.

This museum is very much a treasure. What is superb is the layout. The clean white backdrop gives n edge to some superb exhibitions of art and design. There are a variety of different elements so it's well worth checking what you wish to see....More
