An interesting museum rich with details and artifacts of interest. Located centrally and almost for free. Some modernization would be good!

We didn't come past the lady that sold the tickets. We were showing or student IDs for some reason mine wasn't exepted and she rejected with a "no". Then I showed another, international one which she didn't want to have a look at and just answered with an aggressive no, no, no. We decided not to buy any tickets.

Strongly not recommend. Exhibition is very poor and small. Advertisements are lying about it. There aren't any famous or exclusive things. You may find there a cheap souvenir from regular shop as exhibit! Terrible! Also you may be kicked off if working time is over with no excuses. I was very disappointed.

Would have given higher review, however they 'sold' another ticket ontop for a small art show and when questioned about this played dumb/suddenly didn't speak any English...
