Tour: Medieval and Renaissance

So much to see, and quite well curated. Layout wasnt cramped like British Museum. More thought was put into this place. Interactive stuff here and there - tried on a replica of a gauntlet, and a cloak. Wish I had spent more time here, like 2 days instead of 3 hours.

Tour: Medieval and Renaissance

This place is absolutely magical. The museum has a plethora of exhibits to intrigue you and keep you excited. I could stay in there wondering around for hours.
