Although late on a Sunday afternoon we were the only persons in this museum which was a shame as its extremely thought provoking. Each floor has interesting exhibits with each shwing the struggles that people have suffered. Worth visiting

TIny 4 floor space loaded with all kinds of thought-provoking art and exhibits, pretty curious, but totally skippable.
