I Like the Concept of exhibiting works of art of various periods in various parts of the world. Also I liked the topic of fables in the temporary exhibition

The vast building and space. The elegance of the simplicity and not having to "wait in line to enter". It was great to come relatively early before the "crowds" arrive.....Very friendly personnel!

I had issues when I tried to download the tickets from the website. The downloaded file were corrupted and not readable pdf files. I tried on IOS and Android mobile phones without success. Fortunatly our bookings were recorded and we were able to get them from the desk.

It was easy to pay for my tickets online. The problem came after as they were not sent to me for an hour. I had to contact live chat to get them sent as we were planning to go that day.

I was a little worried when I realized I purchased tickets through an agency and not the museum directly. But the tickets arriving my email inbox quickly. There was no line to skip. Everything went smoothly!
