I don't think you can visit this building at all now and if you can, it's very, very well hidden as to how. Yet it's still worth strolling by simply to see the destruction that part of the modern building has suffered. It's either been...More

Still performing a legislative function, as well as, it seems, functioning as an arts studio, the building also houses a series of free museums, The exhibits are ok, and it good shape, so visiting, which is free, doesn't hurt. But exceptional it isn't.
