General information

This amazing building was re-opened in 2016 after a year of rebuilding. It features three themed floors. Visitors are encouraged to start their experience on the History floor and work their way down to the Artistry floor.

Current exhibitions.

A friend of mine has been there and really recommends it. You really need to go on the Vault Tour as well (no photos though).
