    Afgelopen woensdagmiddag hebben mijn vriendin en ik uw museum bezocht. Wat is het de laatste tijd fantastisch geworden. Spannende exposities en met name de aparte audiotoer die U aanbiedt is elke keer zeer verrassend. Kortom een top museum. Een ding moet me echter van het hart. Je wordt niet echt aardig en gastvrij ontvangen. De mensen achter de balie hebben meer aandacht voor hun gesprek dan voor de bezoeker en bieden ook de audiotour niet aan. Dat ontdek je pas als de suppoost vertelt dat die beschikbaar is. Een verbeterpuntje du s wellicht. Ik ga zeker de expositie nogmaals zien. Vriendelijke groet en veel succes voor de toekomst Enny de Boer

    Good museum. Many rooms that make you relive the history and feel how people used to live. Nice miniature city and stories on various topics/themes. Very nice to know about the history of this amazing glamorous city. Highly recommended to visit.
