This place is part natural history museum, part art museum, and part history museum. There are fossils, iron age artefacts, many Roman tombstones, paintings and objets d'art from many eras... and it just doesn't work. I found the whole to be a disorganized mess. The...More

great pieces of art n history but cannot enjoy much because the staff were following,or i should say ”stalking” the visitors to see what they were doing. This thing never happened to me when visiting other great European museums.

This is a small museum that covers some of the local history. You can get through the entire building in about 90 minutes. English guides are available via a small walkie for 1 euro.

I appreciated the collection in this museum, but, no doubt, would have appreciated even more had I been able to understand the signage. I rented an audio guide to help me through, but found that a very small number of pieces had explanations available in...More
