The museum is very large with many different collections. We focused on the Jugentstil (Art Nouveau) collection which was very good. It will take several days to explore this giant museum which contains so much and interesting items.

150.000 population city but very big, full of historical artifacts, new design modelings. You can spend half of your day in a quick visit. And see too many things. Also impressive for children.

Huge and with a number of varying collections, a few hours could easily be spent here, ranging from Judenstil to Egyption, Japanese, Anthropological and everything in between. Next visit we are going to bring the niece and nephew.
