    fantastic setup, visitors familiar with European museums may not be surprised by the content. Get there early (b 10am) to avoid parking access queues. follow sign-posted route, not googlemap.

    Try to get out of the museum at least an hour before closing time. Otherwise you'll be stuck on a long line for the tram back to the parking garage.
