Excellent museum and full of history and artifacts. Well laid out and beautifully presented. Can be busy with local school groups but there are so many halls and exhibits we did not really notice the crowds once you are in the exhibition halls

No1 : it is free and easy to get to.
Everything is laid out nicely, you don't see cramped items and a great way to view the artifacts. During my visit, 2 items from Athens were on display.
Toilet facilities on every floor and a small cafe to rest your feet.

This is a beautiful museum. The atrium is gorgeous with a beautiful staircase. The displays are in several areas and on more than 1 floor. There is an elevator. The museum is quite extensive and I was not able to get to all areas in one afternoon. All objects are beautifully displayed and photography is allowed with no flash. The Porcelain, Jade and Bronze displays were my highlights and are masterpieces. There is not a dress code here and you can feel comfortable in jeans and a t shirt if you wish.
